$2.25 Million Construction Accident Settlement Recovered

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.

If an individual is injured in a construction accident, they may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has been injured while working or as a bystander, contact an experienced New York construction accident attorney to find out if you have legal recourse.
