Construction Worker Injured on Demolition Worksite by a Piece of Falling Debris, Awarded $900,000 Under Labor Law §240(1) and §241(6)

September 7th, 2016

New York Personal Injury AttorneysE. Smart, suffered a fracture of the right shoulder blade while erecting a scaffold in an underground parking lot at a construction site in Bronx, NY. As Mr. Smart was working, a piece of concrete column debris, which was being demolished from above ground, fell onto his right shoulder, resulting in, not only a fracture, but also the need for surgery.

E. Smart met with the attorneys at Hill & Moin, a firm that has expertise in litigating for construction workers who are afforded special protection under Labor Law §240(1) and §241(6) just a week after his accident at the construction site, and immediately began work on his case. This being one of his main trades, and the injury being so severe, Mr. Smart was unable to work following the accident. Thankfully, with help from Hill & Moin, Mr. Smart was put in touch with a Worker’s Compensation attorney, who was able to help keep him afloat through those rough times. At the conclusion of litigation, Hill & Moin was able to obtain an impressive settlement of $900,000 for his pain and suffering.

E. Smart said of Hill & Moin, “My experience was great! From the first day, the attorneys explained things to me very well. I was never confused about what would take place in my case, and I learned a lot of stuff along the way. Overall, the staff was great! Now, I can move on with my life, and possibly buy myself a home in my country. I would recommend this firm to anyone, anytime.”
