61-Year-Old Man Crushed And Paralyzed While On Machine; $3.75 Million Settlement During Trial

April 15, 2018

Martin & Jones represented a 61-year-old man who was paralyzed while working at another company’s job site. He was working on a piece of that company’s equipment when a photo eye was triggered causing a 6,000 pound piece of metal to be lowered onto the gentleman. It was the company’s responsibility to disable the machinery before our client, an employee of another company, worked on it, but it had not been disabled. The company blamed our client and said that it was his responsibility to make sure the machine was disabled, but we were able to track down a former supervisor in that department who testified that it was, in fact, the responsibility of the company that owned the plant and machinery. The case settled for $3.75 million after two weeks of trial.
