On September 27th, at approximately 7:13 PM, a 29-year-old resident of New Jersey, entered an establishment north of Boston with a co-worker. While at the establishment, he was served alcohol and interacted with female employees. At approximately 9:59 PM, he was approached by a female employee who engaged him physically by interlocking arms. The female employee then escorted him to a VIP Section. Before entering the VIP Section with the female employee, the victim interacted with security staff. After the exchange between the victim, the female employee and security personnel at the entrance of the VIP Section, the victim started walking away, heading back to the bar. 10 seconds later, he was attacked by the same security personell, throwing a blow to the back of the head. After dazing him, he, along with 5 employees forcefull ejected the victim.

Security staff closed the doors with the victim outside. At 10:00, five security staffers exited the premises through the front door and chased the victim into the parking lot, surrounding him in an aggressive manner. The original assaillant kicked the victim as the security staff surrounded him. The victim was sucker punched in the face, knocking the victim unconscious.

At 10:03 PM, a captain from the City’s Police Department pulled into the parking lot and called emergency services.

Since this assault, the victim has lived with a traumatic brain injury. He is no longer employable. He can no longer enjoy the activities with his fiancé that he enjoyed before this unnecessary, avoidable incident.

He received compensation of $1,000,000 for his past and future medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering and emotion/mental anguish which includes embarrassment, depression, loss of self-worth etc. It is not enough.

Unsafe Construction Site

Mr. M

775000

Construction site injuries due to contact with electrical lines are a well-known hazard. Fifty-Four percent (54%) of all fatal electrical injuries occurred in the construction industry. On October 14th at approximately 10:30 AM, the Superintendent of a Construction Company was in charge of a construction project in Boston. A parking lot with a small building was removed and the excavation for the foundation of the building was in progress. During removal of the small building, electrical power to the building via a telephone pole was removed by Public Utility in accordance with a work order filled out by Superintendent. Superintendent assumed this removed electrical current from the entire construction project.

Two conduits entered the construction area from the street. Superintendent instructed the excavation crew to remove the conduits. Supervisor explained he had a Work Order from Public Utility and the lines inside the conduits were dead.

Mr. M, the victim, confirmed the plan with his own supervisor who explained “if Supervisor says its ok then it is ok.” The first conduit was cut by excavation crewmen and removed with the front loader by Mr. M. Mr. M exited the excavator and used a hacksaw to cut the second conduit. On his second pull of the hacksaw, a bright flash occurred as well as a loud pop. Mr. M stood up and retrieved his cell phone. Mr. M called his father. While speaking to his father, he felt something striking him. Mr. M noticed co-workers throwing dirt on him. Mr. M was on fire.

An investigation by OSHA revealed multiple violations by Construction Company. The bottom line is this should have been prevented. All Supervisor had to do was walk the line back to the manhole to make sure it was tagged out as dead. Assuming it was dead, caused Mr. M to endure a lifetime of disability, pain, and emotional distress.

Mr. M suffered serious burns to his left hand, arm, and leg because of being electrocuted and burned. Prior to trial, the parties engaged in mediation and resolved the claims for $775,000.

Slip and Fall

Ms. D

510000

About 1 million Americans are injured, and 17,000 people die, because of fall injuries every year: according to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention. On October 16, 2016, Large Retailer operated a store in Watertown, Massachusetts, which was open to the public. The women’s restroom handicap stall was in a defective condition making it in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Specifically, there was no handle present to close the door, the locking mechanism was broken as was the hook on the back of the door provided for patrons’ use.

On or about October 16th, Ms. D, aged 82, was a customer of Large Retailer when she entered the handicapped stall and tried to shut the stall door to use the restroom. The latch was broken and there was no handle for her to hold the door shut. She used a walker to ambulate, and she had to let go of her walker to use both hands to attempt to shut the stall door. She attempted to use the broken coat hook on the back of the stall door to hold the door shut while she put her finger in the hole of the latch to try and secure the door. Despite these efforts, she fell.

After a lawsuit was filed, Authorized Representative testified on behalf of Large Retailer regarding ADA requirements. He testified it was important for Large Retailer to remain in compliance with ADA requirements for the safety of its customers. Furthermore, although reluctantly, Authorized Representative agreed that if the latch on the handicap stall was broken, it would not be graspable, which, therefore, is in violation of the ADA. Finally, Authorized Representative testified that if the latch on the handicap stall was broken, the stall should be shut down and the latch should be fixed immediately. This was not done on October 16, 2016.

After consulting with an ADA Compliance Consultant, specifically a Certified Access Specialist/ Accessibility Inspector we learned that the Standard of Care that Large Retailer is responsible to comply with is that all “readily achievable” barriers be removed immediately. The fact that the slide lock remained broken and that Large Retailer did not shut down the ADA stall while a contractor or in-house maintenance personnel repaired the lock, was a deviation from the required standard of care. Furthermore, ADA Compliance Consultant opined the absence of a handle, which all parties agree was not there on October 16, 2016, was in and of itself a violation of the ADA. Section 404.2.7 of the Federal ADA require that all doors, doorways, and gates be accessible to all disabled and provide hardware and locking mechanism that can be operable with one hand without forcing the user to pinch, tightly grasp or twisting of the wrist to use or operate. Finally, it was his opinion that Large Retailer did not maintain the minimum standard of care when maintaining accessible elements within this specific facility.

Dr. S, a Massachusetts physician who is Board-Certified in Orthopedics, explained Ms. D was an 82-year-old woman who fell while in the bathroom at Large Retailer. She sustained unstable T11 and T12 fractures. This required surgical treatment. She later suffered from wound breakdown and required a wound debridement which followed multiple visits for wound care. Dr. S explains that there can be no doubt that Ms. D sustained a traumatic thoracic fracture when she fell. The surgery she underwent was directly necessitated by this fall and the resultant injury, the rehabilitation she required, as well as the wound care she required, were a direct result of this injury. She remained bedbound for many months which is also a direct result of this injury.

As of July 25th of the following year, her progress indicated that she was permanently partially disabled due to her injury. According to the American Medical Association Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 6th Edition, Ms. D has 25% whole person impairment.

Prior to the incident, Ms. D’s activities included being independent, living on her own, and able to perform activities of daily living. Since the October 16th fall, Jeanette D has had to go through a very long, very frustrating, and very painful course of surgical intervention, rehabilitation, therapy, medication, and routine follow-ups. During this time, Ms. D has not been able to live independently and has been forced to reside in a nursing home in a wheelchair.

The parties reached agreement to resolve Ms. D’s allegations for $510,000 after engaging in mediation.

Bus Injury

Ms. E

305000

A study from the University of Michigan found that, on average, about 63,000 buses of all types are involved in bus accidents. About 14,000 of these resulted in injuries. In our situation, Bus Company distributed Safety Bulletins to Driver to address safety issues. These issues included potential for injuries at the rear doors of the bus. Bus Company was required by Federal Law to report serious injuries to the United States Department of Transportation. Furthermore, Bus Company was required to remain ADA compliant and train employees regarding the needs of elderly passengers. Bus Company reported injuries to its insurance company but failed to investigate or take corrective measures internally.

On March 6th, Ms. E was a passenger on a Bus Company bus at Logan Airport. She attempted to exit the rear door of the bus at her Terminal. She requested help with her bag, however, she was ignored. As she attempted to exit, the rear door caught her foot and she fell. Bus Company’s own safety procedures require the bus be stopped within one foot of the curb to allow safe exit by its passengers. This reduces the distance between the bus and the sidewalk allowing for a safe step onto the sidewalk. When Ms. E exited the bus, it was over two feet from the curb.

Accordingly, Driver ignored Bus Company’s own Safety Rules. Bus Company failed to train and monitor its drivers to follow its Safety Rules.

The fall resulted in a Weber Type B distal fibula fracture of Ms. E’s right ankle, requiring surgery and the insertion of hardware. Ms. E’s doctor’s medical opinion is that Ms. E has a 12% impairment of the right lower extremity which is equivalent to 8% of the whole person solely from the injury of March 6th.

Rather than risk the uncertainty of trial, Ms. E. resolved her claims against Bus Company at mediation for $305,000.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injuries and over 17,000 people die in the U.S. annually because of these injuries.

It is the responsibility of a business owner who is deriving profit from members of the community to make sure the property is safe for all members of the community.

On July 20th, the Restaurant opened its business to members of our community. The front steps were not in compliance with the building code. Specifically, the railing failed to extend pass the last step and was not graspable in violation of the Massachusetts State Building Code, 6th Edition. Ms. C, after enjoying dinner at the restaurant with her husband, walks down the front stairs attempting to use the railing. She is 80 and she is careful. As she takes her last step, with no railing available, she falls fracturing her left hip, requiring surgery and rehabilitation.

Ms. C’s can still lift and carry up to 10 pounds; stand and walk for 2-3 hours per day; occasionally climb stairs without discomfort and occasionally stoop, crouch, and kneel. Further, Ms. C. is not able to walk at a reasonable pace on rough or uneven surfaces.

After a 4-hour mediation only 19 months following the injury, Ms. C was compensated $200,000 for her losses.

Based on the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and National Automotive Sampling System General Estimates System (NASS-GES) data, about 40 percent of the estimated 5,811,000 crashes that occurred in the United States in 2018 were intersection-related crashes. Failure to pay attention and yield the right of way results in life altering crashes.

On August 26th, Mr. J was operating a box truck in the scope of his employment with a local construction company when he failed to pay attention and yield the right of way to Ms. R as he attempted a left turn from a convenience store parking lot in Keene, New Hampshire. Mr. J’s box truck struck Ms. R’s vehicle. The force of the impact caused the 76-year-old Ms. R’s right femur to snap, requiring the surgical implantation of hardware. At the time of discharge from the hospital one month later, Ms. R was utilizing a walker with weight bearing as tolerated. She continued to need assistance with some most of her activities of daily living, most importantly, stair walking.

Ms. R received a $200,000 settlement 13 months after the crash, without ever stepping foot inside a courtroom. This money was to compensate her for the difficulties she experiences when she tries to drive. She lives alone and can no longer go to the grocery, pharmacy, hairdresser, or doctor on her own. She must rely on others to help her with activities she was performing on her own herself only the day before the crash.

When Christina was a passenger on her way home traveling on Gorham Street in Lowell, she didn’t expect that she would get in a car crash and need elbow surgery. Unfortunately, the insurance policies for the vehicles involved only totaled $40,000, and no one had personal assets to pursue. While her injuries were significant and entitled her to the full $40,000, the insurance companies took a ridiculous position and refused to compensate her. She hired us 15 months after the crash and after a year of hard work, we settled the case for all of the available money.
