33-year-old NYC Sanitation Worker Tears ACL in Workplace Accident

June 26th, 2018

Brooklyn sanitation employee L.P. was walking through his regular work garage, as he had done daily the past 8 years, when a decayed platform crumbled beneath him. He had stepped onto the platform’s curb with his right leg, which twisted at his knee and ankle under the weight of the impact, causing him to fall. L.P.’s partner was walking with him at the time of the accident and witnessed the platform break and his partner’s subsequent fall. Shortly after, L.P. was taken in an ambulance from the worksite.

This accident resulted in a ruptured ACL as well as sprains in the ankle and knee, from which L.P. incurred surgery, pain, and suffering.

Despite the unfortunate circumstance, L.P. felt that legally, “everything went smoothly.”He was extremely satisfied with the representation by Hill & Moin and said that working with the firm“ felt like family.” L.P. is grateful now to be able to use the money he received in settlement for his accident towards continuing treatment for his injuries.
