$2,150,000 for plumber injured during construction at McCormick Place.
The plaintiff and a coworker were carrying a large heavy pipe to their work area when the plaintiff was caused to trip and fall on a piece of wood which was partially buried under dirt and gravel. The plaintiff argued that the wood had been used to make a ramp for accessing a higher level of the site, but that the ramp had not been properly constructed or maintained by the defendant general contractor.
The plaintiff was caused to suffer a herniated disc in his lower back which required surgery and caused him to lose a significant amount of wages and benefits. The failure to properly construct, inspect and maintain the ramp was highlighted in obtaining this significant settlement. Our firm also represented the plaintiff in his worker’s compensation claim against his employer and negotiated a successful resolution of both matters.
