Asta and Associates represented a union mason in one such case who was injured while working on the construction of a residential apartment tower when a load of concrete block broke free from a hoist and fell on him. The worker sustained an injury to his knee, requiring reconstructive knee surgery and rehabilitation. This worker’s case was brought under the Labor Law of New York State.
Following a favorable decision by the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court, which awarded summary judgment to the injured worker, the firm negotiated a $1,200,000 settlement. The settlement compensates the injured worker for his injuries, his pain and suffering, and his future medical care.
