Settlement:
$1,225,000

$1,225,000 Settlement + $200,000 Lien Reduction for construction laborer who fell approximately 9 feet onto his back while handing up sheets of plywood. We argued that the work practice of sheathing the roof with no fall protection of any kind violated OSHA and safe trade custom. This matter, which was tried in Will County, settled three days into trial for an amount nearly four times the amount that was offered prior to trial.
