Our client is a 43 year old ironworker. In November of 2014 he was on a ladder in a basement of a commercial building in NYC. He was carrying steel shims to be placed under steel beams to shore up a ceiling. The ladder moved and he fell 3-4 feet, suffering knee injuries requiring two arthroscopic procedures. He was out of work for about a year. The case settled at mediation for $325,000.
