Our client, a construction worker, was working on the Second Avenue Subway construction project. He was hundreds of feet underneath Second Avenue in Manhattan and he was standing on a scaffold while repairing a broken conveyor belt. Our client was not provided with adequate safety equipment, and as a result, he was caused to fall off the scaffold approximately 25 feet and landed at the bottom of the tunnel. As a result, he sustained injuries to his shoulder and foot.
After the completion of depositions, Schulman Blitz, LLP settled the case for $245,000.
