Partner William P. Lightfoot recently recovered 1.8 million dollars for a worker who fell through a hole in a roof while on a construction site. Though the general contractor covered the hole, the cover was not secured and was not properly marked. OSHA found that the contractor did not maintain a safe place to work and violated safety regulations. In addition to relying on the OSHA investigation, Mr. Lightfoot used medical illustrations to demonstrate the full extent of the worker’s injuries.
