$210,000 Settlement for Construction Accident at Rego Center Shopping Mall

May 30, 2012

We recently obtained a settlement of $210,000 for our client’s construction accident while working in constructing the Rego Center Shopping Mall in Rego Park (Queens), New York.

The client fell while on the job.  He was carrying various wooden forms, and he claimed to have tripped due his foot getting entangled in a cable left by another contractor.  The client sustained various knee injuries requiring surgery.

Liability turned on Labor Law 241 (6) and whether the client did indeed trip due to a cable or other factors.  This issue and damages were highly contested.

Please note that prior case results do not guarantee a similar result in your case.
