Carpenter Gets $450,000 for Injured Fingers

This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

A 38-year old carpenter who had to have two fingers on his right (dominant) hand re-attached was awarded a $450,000 settlement as damages for his injury.

Jose Guardado got his fingers caught between an electrical panel and a conduit sticking up two feet from the ground while on a job at a construction site. In his suit, Guardado alleged that an employee for the company he was subcontracted by tipped the 1,000 pound electrical panel onto him, without having checked the weight of the panel, or warning Guardado about how heavy it was.
