Firm Achieves Justice for Injured Electrician
An electrician has been awarded $1.6 million in compensation after the scaffold he was standing on moved unexpectedly, lurching him forward into a 20ft fall to the ground. The scaffold, which supported Plaintiff and two other electricians, was provided by the construction company and had no safety rails, when an unsecured ladder shifted and caused the rolling scaffold to move suddenly. As a result of the accident, Plaintiff suffered a multitude of injuries, including extensive spinal injury, head trauma, and damage to his ankles, knees, arms and shoulders.
When a jury rules like this in a sexual harrasment case, they know that it was international, and they also know that the reason this manager was able to get away with this was that the company had to be looking the other way."
