Client Joseph Mourning severely injured after a construction company leaves metal pipe protruding from a manhole.

The law offices of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, P.A., recently recovered $1 million for client Joseph Mourning, injured in West Palm Beach on April 17, 2003. Mourning, who recently celebrated his thirty-third birthday, severely injured his back when his vehicle struck a large steel pipe protruding from a manhole on South Flagler Drive. Due to traffic and other factors, he could not avoid the pipe that had been left by a construction company. As a result, his vehicle was jerked violently to the right, resulting in significant injuries to Mourning.

Mourning, who was in good health and an accomplished basketball player, suffered from cervical and lumbar disc abnormalities due to the accident—ultimately affecting his ability to continue his everyday activities. These injuries required two invasive surgical procedures, which were performed by surgeons at The Spine Center in Palm Beach Gardens. While these surgeries helped Mourning with some of his pain, he will likely have physical limitations for the rest of his life.

“Steinger, Iscoe & Greene worked to receive a judgment from the jury in this matter, and then won a critical decision in the Appellate Court to secure this recovery for Mr. Mourning,” said attorney Seth Pachter of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene. “I could not be happier for Mr. Mourning. He is a fine gentleman, and we are happy to help give him peace of mind and assist in alleviating the burden associated with his accident.”

A case against Ballast Nedam Construction, Inc., was filed on November 18, 2004, and was settled on September 14, 2007. (Trial Court Case No.: 502004CA010866XXXXMB, Fifteenth Judicial Circuit for Palm Beach County Appellate Court Case No.: 4D06-2557 Fourth District Court of Appeals.)
