$2,500,000 – Anonymous v. Anonymous – Accident on Construction Lift (Elevator)

In this construction accident case, our client, an operating engineer, was injured when the lift he was operating (a lift is a temporary elevator, attached to the outside of a building that hoists workers and supplies to the various floors doing the building’s construction) malfunctioned. The lift, without warning, came to a sudden stop, between two random floors, causing our client to fly into the air and then onto the lift’s floor. Our client sustained injuries to his knees and ankles, although with daily discomfort our client continued working for three more years until he was in so much pain, he had to stop. Defendants argued that, at best, our client suffered a sprained ankle and if he really couldn’t work it was for a variety of reasons, but not from the lift malfunctioning. The case settled at a mediation for $2,500,000. The defendants requested a confidentiality agreement.
