Scaffolding Accident Results in $505,000 Settlement

April 25, 2018 in ,

A 26-year-old laborer fell approximately 15 feet while dismantling a scaffold.  The plank of the scaffold extended approximately one foot beyond the scaffold’s frame.  The Plaintiff stepped on the edge of the plank and the plank toppled over with the plaintiff.  The plaintiff injured his shoulder requiring shoulder surgery and suffered a fracture of the L2 vertebrae.  He missed approximately 16 months from work. The parties attended a private mediation and while it did not settle at mediation, the parties continued settlement negotiations and ultimately settled the case for $505,000.
