Dervishi Law Breaking News!
“ We are proud to have represented a Local 3 Electrician in a motor vehicle accident that settled before trial this month. The Plaintiff suffered an exacerbation of a prior injury to his lower back that required surgery. As a result of the accident he was unable to return to his job as an electrician. The defendant’s insurance company claimed the injuries were not from the accident but instead from his years of heavy construction work. As a result, the initial settlement offer was $0. After two 4 hour mediations we were able to convince the mediator and the insurance company to offer $2.5 million dollar to settle the case before trial. We feel privileged to have represented another injured New York City construction worker and get his family the money they need to cope with his devastating injuries. “
“1.4 million dollar settlement for a non-union scaffold worker who injured his head, neck, back, shoulder and both knees when a scaffold partially collapsed, leaving him dangling from a lanyard ten stories above.
A tower frame alongside a building on the Dumbo waterfront broke and swung outward, causing the scaffold worker to fall nearly ten feet over the edge, where he was found dangling from a lanyard approximately ten stories above the ground. Our investigation, including interviews with witnesses and our engineer’s subsequent inspection of the scaffold tower, revealed the couplers that secured the frames together failed, bending, breaking and causing the collapse.
The building owner and general contractor, who were responsible for furnishing safe and adequate scaffolding so as to give proper protection to the worker, were held responsible accordingly. This settlement will provide this then 37-year-old father of four with compensation for the pain, suffering and medical expenses caused by this incident, easing the financial burden he and his family has faced for the past three years.
