According to the Digital Journal, a 49 year-old construction worker from New York City has settled his personal injury lawsuit for $1,700,000. The worker was represented by Palermo Tuohy Bruno, PLLC.
The worker was injured when a van ran through a construction barrier, causing a piece of the barrier to be thrown into the worker’s back. Because of the thrown barrier, the worker suffered herniated discs and required back surgery. After the accident and subsequent surgery, the worker was unable to return to work.
The firm settled the lawsuit through mediation.
