$1,500,000 In Personal Injury AND Workers Compensation to Worker Falling Through Unmarked Trap Door

Our worker's compensation attorneys represented a 39-year-old cable repairman who was working in a utility shack atop a 17-story Illinois apartment building. He fell through a trap door of a six-foot access shaft while attempting to retrieve a two-way company phone. The access shaft had guard rails/walls on all sides. There were no warning signs against entering the access shaft or stepping on the trap door, which our client thought was solid, concrete sub-floor. As a result, our client fell eight feet to the hallway stairs below, resulting in multiple fractures of his leg. Knee replacement surgery will be required in the future. In the end, our client was awarded $1.2 million for his injury case. He also received an additional $300,000 for his worker's compensation claim.
