NEW YORK, NY, October 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When a construction worker fell while on the job at the LIRR Expansion Project, he trusted Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C., a highly respected personal injury firm, to get him the compensation he deserved (Case #: SC/Queens 21244/11).
The fall occurred when the plaintiff was asked by his supervisor to retrieve parts from another area of the LIRR Expansion Project jobsite. The supervisor sent him into a dangerous area that required the use of an 18-foot extension ladder. According to court documents, while descending the ladder, the ladder slipped in the mud and the plaintiff fell. The plaintiff's foot became caught in the rungs of the ladder and he sustained injuries to his foot and spine. While he was able to complete that day's work, the plaintiff was subsequently unable to work due to pain and later required neck surgery.
"Our firm was able to win this man $1.5 million for his pain, suffering and lost wages," Steven Schwartzapfel, the founder of Schwartzapfel Lawyers P.C., said. "It's everything he and his family deserved for the trauma of his injury and the loss of his livelihood."
