Construction Accident, Lower Back Disc Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
A 53-year-old cement mason was injured in the collapse of a 4-million gallon digester tank in the middle of a construction site. Our client managed to escape the collapse but was injured in the process. He had an extensive medical history of multiple trauma-related injuries, including to the lower back, where he had had surgery prior to the construction accident. The defense insurance company’s highest offer in settlement was $15,000. A jury awarded our client $3.3 Million.
