We will not let property owners and general contractors place profits over the workers of this great city's safety
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
In a case highlighting worker safety issues in New York City, personal injury law firm Raphaelson and Levine secured a $525,000 settlement for an injured construction worker who was working demolition at Ground Zero, the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
According to case index No. 28846/07 in New York Supreme Court, County of Kings, a scattered shovel left by another contractor led to a New York City asbestos contractor’s knee injury. The injury required immediate surgery, as well as several revision surgeries.
Raphaelson and Levine litigated the case in New York Supreme Court, County of Kings. Despite the defendants’ claim that it was the asbestos contractor’s own shovel that caused the accident, the New York personal injury law firm established in case index 28846/07, CAL. NO. 2012-003785T that it was a scattered tool from a different contractor and that the defendants had violated New York Labor Law and the State Industrial Code.
“We will not let property owners and general contractors place profits over the workers of this great city's safety,” the firm said in a statement issued about the case.
