$3.47 Million

Construction Site Negligence Settlement

The Case: While working as a subcontractor for a manufacturing plant, our client leaned against a railing that gave out beneath him, causing him to fall through the building and onto the ground. He sustained many orthopedic injuries, including fractured heels, femur, pelvis, and lumbar vertebrae. Due to multiple surgeries, he accumulated $250,000 in medical bills and anticipated $972,000 in future pain management and medical care expenses.

The Outcome: Yarborough Applegate brought a lawsuit against the plant and railing system distributor for negligence and design defects, respectively. Though defense counsel argued that our client was not properly tied off with his safety harness when he fell, that he was comparatively negligent, and that the product was safe as designed, we were successful in securing a $3,470,000 settlement to ensure comfort and top-notch care for the rest of our client’s lifetime.
