Workers' Compensation

$1.8 Million for Injured Worker

On November 9, 2015, a laborer who was injured at a landfill agreed to a $1.8 million settlement.  A 40-year-old man was working at a landfill in East Brunswick when the utility vehicle he was riding in tumbled down an embankment. Gill & Chamas in Woodbridge, NJ, represented the plaintiff, who was thrown from the vehicle and suffered multiple fractured ribs as well as fractures to his pelvis and left femur. He also suffered a damaged urethra that required multiple surgeries.

The vehicle was rented by the landfill operator about a month before the accident. After an examination of the vehicle, it was discovered that it was missing a right rear brake pad and its steering mechanism had a failing ball joint.

The case settled just as the parties were preparing to select a jury for a trial in Middlesex County.
