$5 Million Settlement Secured for Injured Construction Worker in Cable Trip Accident

A settlement of 5 million dollars was obtained for a New York construction worker who tripped on unsecured cables while walking to her worksite. As a result of the fall, the worker suffered injuries to her back, knees, and hands which required surgery. The lower court agreed with the Defendants’ position that they were not responsible under the New York State Labor Law 241(6) because the wires were a permanent part of the building and not a hazardous condition. Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. prevailed in overturning the decision of the lower court and that whether the Defendants violated the New York State Labor Law should be a decision made by a jury. This case was handled by partner Jeff S. Korek and senior associate Daniel B. Linson.
