Zach Perecman achieved an $800,000 settlement at mediation for a 62-year-old union sheet metal worker who was knocked off a ladder by a falling HVAC duct. The worker injured his rotator cuff requiring arthroscopic surgery. The case was settled during the appeal of the summary judgment motion brought under Labor Law 240(1).

Sagar Chadha settled a case for $500,000 involving our client, a firewatch, who injured his knee when he was caused to fall from a baker scaffold that tipped over. Our client was thankfully able to return to work within 6 months of the accident, and we are proud we were able to secure him this well-deserved compensation.
