We helped to achieve a $1.9M settlement for a client who was injured during construction when he was struck by falling debris.

During a demolition project, the plaintiff was tasked with removing a large window from an exterior wall. The top of the window stood approximately 10 feet off of the ground. The plaintiff was not provided with an elevated working platform and was instructed to stretch a pry bar over his head in an attempt to pry the window out of the wall.

As he stretched to pry overhead, the top of the window casement became dislodged and fell from a height of 10 feet, striking the plaintiff and propelling him to the ground.
