F&A’s recent trip & fall construction site victories:
F&A settled a case on behalf of a construction worker who tripped and fell in a passageway of a new structure being erected at the USTA National Tennis Center. The worker fell on metal shavings left by other trades. The case settled at mediation for over half a million dollars.
In another case, a worker tripped and fell over electrical conduit that was not tied down as he walked carrying re-bar on a sub floor. That case settled for over $400,000.
