January 4, 2012

Carpenter on an industrial construction site suffered severe head injury when his skylift was caused to fall as he was fabricating the roof. The skylift fell as a consequence of an unsafe working condition on the floor below, which included the contractor's failure to cover openings in the floor. A wheel of the skylift fell into an unsecured opening resulting in the skylift tipping over, thereby, causing the Plaintiff's severe head injury. The case settled for $2,800,000.
