Man Tears Rotator Cuff and Fractures Shoulder at Job Site

In 2018, the plaintiff was working at a construction site to rebuild a residential home. While exiting the project, he tripped and fell over a wooden pallet submerged in a pool of water in front of the house. This resulted in a complete rotator cuff tear/rupture of the left shoulder and a fracture dislocation on the right with massive rotator cuff tears. His many injuries required surgery.
