$1.32 Million Dollar Jury Verdict for scaffolding case. Tried by Marvin A. Brustin, Milo W. Lundblad and Mark G. Szaflarski. Late Friday evening a jury returned a $1.32 Million Dollar verdict in favor of a local Labor Union employee who fell 22 feet to the ground when the scaffold planks he stepped on collapsed. He suffered a torn meniscus in his knee that was treated successfully with surgery. The defendant argued all current health problems which involved the knee, neck and back were a result of arthritis that existed prior to the fall. Their final offer was $300,000 at trial which was refused. Defendant, a prime contractor, was found liable by the jury for failing to inspect and locate a defect in the scaffold after it had been modified prior to the accident.
