Case Results

$450,000 – Juan Vasquez v. Lam’s Golden Pearl Hotel

Mr. Vasquez was injured when a screw flew underneath his safety glasses and struck him in his eye, causing him to lose partial vision. We sued the building owner and general contractor, alleging a failure to proper equipment as required by the Industrial Code. Defendants claimed that they complied with the Code as they provided the plaintiff with safety glasses. In response, we hired a nationally recognized safety construction expert who opined that under the circumstances of this case the defendants were required to provide plaintiff with safety goggles – as opposed to glasses – as only goggles would have prevented the screw from accessing his eye. On the eve of trial, the parties settled for $450,000.
