Block O Toole & Murphy is pleased to announce that it has reached a settlement of $2.25 million for an undocumented worker injured in a Manhattan construction accident. The worker was performing cutting and drilling on the 27th floor of a Manhattan high-rise when the floor fell out from under him. The worker fell one story onto the 26th floor and sustained serious lower back and knee injuries as a result.
After the fall, the worker underwent a lumbar fusion surgery of the L4-L5 and L5-S1 levels. Despite the worker being undocumented, he won a rigorously contested lost wage claim. The case was handled by attorneys Stephen J. Murphy and Christina Mark.
