Jury Finds General Contractor Responsible for Injury to Plumber

While working at a new home construction site, our client, the plumber, ascended a set of stairs which unexpectedly collapsed beneath him.  The stairs had been constructed by a subcontractor who was on site.  The general contractor blamed the plumber for going up the stairs when there were workers nearby and blamed the other subcontractor for failing to warn the plumber and for failing to inform the general contractor about the dangerous condition on the property.  As a result of the stair collapse, our client suffered a serious back injury that included a burst fracture requiring a two-level spinal fusion surgery.  The subcontractor settled with the plumber shortly before going to trial, but the general contractor refused to accept any responsibility.  After two days of deliberations, the jury awarded a $1.9 million verdict to our client, assigning 39% of the responsibility to the general contractor.  We were very happy to receive such a great verdict after the extensive difficulties we had to overcome, and hope the funds help our client cope with his remaining pain and injuries.
