Contractor’s Insurer Pays Laborer $1.7 million  - November 2018

A young laborer working on a state project fell off a scaffold and suffered serious injuries to his leg and back.  Though he returned to his job within a year, he continued to experience pain at the end of a work day.  John L. Perticone, Esq. said that the insurer for the contractor agreed to pay only after losing a motion to dismiss the claim.  The judge ruled that New York State Labor Law 240 (the “scaffold law”) had been violated.
