Jury Awards $12 Million To Worker Who Fell From Elevated Subway Track


Posted on Jul 23, 2009

Recently, a Brooklyn jury found that the New York City Transit Authority was negligent, and therefore responsible for the serious personal injuries sustained by George Nunez, because they failed to tell him that they had removed the supporting bolts on the walkway where he was directed to go, and that he therefore needed to engage a safety harness.
