New York Lawyers at The Perecman Firm Deliver One of New York’s Largest Construction Accident Verdicts for 2010


The recently released Verdict Search’s Top NY Verdicts of 2010 reports that New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman secured the one of the largest New York construction accident verdicts of 2010 with his settlement of the Wojciech Zwitek v. New York City School Construction Authority and the City of New York case tried in Kings Supreme Court.

The $2,400,000 settlement, during trial sends clear message to contractors and property owners after construction worker suffers a foot fracture after falling from a metal container.

Wojciech Zwitek, a 39 year old union-employed construction worker, was injured after he lost his balance and fell 12 feet to the ground while on the job. As stated, Zwitek fell while passing planks to a co-worker below. Perecman argued that the construction accident fall stemmed from an elevation-related hazard, improper safeguarding and a lack of proper, safe equipment.

“The $2,400,000 settlement will reminds contractors and property owners to look carefully at their safety standards and equipment. The goal is to, ultimately, affect change that will benefit thousands of construction workers,” said New York construction accident lawyer Perecman.

The jury heard how Zwitek sustained a crushing injury of his fight foot in the construction site fall. They also heard how he continues to suffer pain in his right foot and heel. Zwitek also claims to suffer a loss of range of motion that affects his ability to stand for long periods of time and prevents his from returning to work.

Zwitek sought recovery of his past and future medical expenses, his past and future lost earnings, and damages for his past and future pain and suffering.
