A Local 5 Union Laborer recovered $900,000.00 after suffering severe back injuries, which resulted from a construction site accident.
- The Case
The laborer walked backward into a divot on a Plaintfield North High School construction project.
- In Depth Look
The defendant argued that the laborer had preexisting back degeneration, malalignment and spondylosithesis, which caused his problems. They argued that the laborer was not exercising proper care by watching where he was walking.
The attorneys from Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ argued that the general contract, Frederick Quinn Construction, did not provide a safe ground surface from which to perform his work; and therefore, the laborer tripped on a 3-4 inch divot behind him.
