Family Receives $5 Million after Construction Wrongful Death

Amount: $5,000,000
Plaintiff’s Counsel: Jonathan D. Mester

Plaintiff’s decedent was working for a subcontractor on a project involving construction of a new hotel. Plaintiff’s decedent entered an elevator shaft and stood on a wood platform which had been erected by a fellow subcontractor at the direction of the general contractor. Plaintiff’s decedent then fell through the platform after he stepped on the section towards the end of the platform, falling 4 stories to his death. Discovery revealed that the platform had been changed due to a failure to meet initial specifications, and that the side of the platform was ultimately improperly constructed. Case settled for $5,000,000.
