Bronx Construction Worker Injured Under Scaffold Awarded $12.5 Million
Posted on Jul 12, 2010
Recently, a Bronx jury awarded more than $12,000,000 to a construction worker who sustained a badly herniated disc in his back when a heavy frame fell onto him from a scaffold beneath which he was cleaning. At the time of the construction accident, the scaffolding was in the process of being disassembled. Although the defense attorneys in the case argued that the plaintiff's herniated disc was not caused by this accident, but rather was the product of a pre-existing condition, the jury disagreed.
