LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 10, 2018
The law firm of Edelman, Krasin & Jaye was successful in procuring a pre-trial settlement of $4 million on behalf of their client -- Ronald Dirschneider -- who was injured while installing a heavy metal beam at a women’s clothing store. The plaintiff claimed that he was doing renovations as an employee for Vulcan Iron Works, Inc. when the accident happened. The settlement was reached at mediation in the Supreme Court of the State of New York (Index No.: 113834/11) the night before the trial was set to proceed.
The workplace injury claim arose after Mr. Dirschneider allegedly tumbled head first down some stairs while lowering a 500-pound beam. According to court records, the plaintiff had been moving the beam when it got caught on a stair tread that was slightly offset. While dislodging the beam, it pulled on the plaintiff’s glove, knocking him off balance. The resulting fall caused him to suffer multiple injuries to his right foot, including a post cuneiform fracture and torn ligaments, the former of which necessitated two surgeries to implant and later explant hardware.
“Establishing liability was complex in this case. After our motion for summary judgement on Labor Law 240 was initially denied, our team was able to get this reversed on appeal, leaving our client’s monetary damages the only remaining matter,” said Senior Partner Lawrence P. Krasin.
The $4 million settlement was negotiated by Edelman, Krasin & Jaye during mediation just before trial was slated to start, marking another notable victory for the New York personal injury law firm.
