We recently tried and won a case on behalf of a man on a labor crew who was struck by a saw and sustained an injury to his right thigh. The client was struck by a kick-back from the saw, resulting in 70 percent of the bone's thickness being cut. The site was not appropriately safeguarded nor provided with the proper, safe equipment that is required of Labor Laws, and the defendants negligently failed to ensure the workers' safety.
The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff in the amount of $2 million. M. G. v. City of New York Greater Jamaica Development Corporation.
