Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2014
For nearly three decades, Losi & Gangi has represented thousands of clients in legal matters of workers’ compensation, personal injury and Social Security. The Buffalo firm recently resolved a construction site injury claim (Index No. I2012-3382) for Abraham Arroyo, a 54-year-old laborer, who sustained serious injuries to his neck and back while working on the renovation of a historic downtown property. The case was Abraham Arroyo v. City of Buffalo and Ledge Creek Development, Inc. from the Supreme Court of Erie County, New York State.
According to court documents, Arroyo was injured on Aug. 30, 2012 when the floor he was working on collapsed, causing him to fall approximately 8 to 10 feet to the floor below. Although Arroyo was exposed to an elevation-related risk, he was not provided with safety devices such as safety harnesses, safety belts, safety nets, ropes, lifelines or scaffolds.
Losi & Gangi commenced a lawsuit against the property owner and the general contractor in charge of the renovation, alleging violations of the New York State Labor Law, the court documents state. Under the New York State Labor Law, owners and contractors are held responsible for job-site safety.
After lengthy negotiations, the insurance carriers for the owner and general contractor agreed to pay Arroyo $850,000 in compensatory damages, according to the court documents. This result ensures that Arroyo will be able to support his family and afford all future medical expenses associated with his injuries.
