Work Place Accident Results in $2.9M Settlement for Construction Worker

This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

Bronx County, NY: A construction worker injured on the job while climbing scaffolding has been awarded a $2,871,200 settlement by the jury hearing his personal injury suit.

The jury found that the New York City School Construction Authority, which operated the site, had violated state code because it had not provided adequate access to the scaffold's platform.

Marek Ciepierski, who filed the suit, alleged that the only way he had to access the scaffold platform was to climb the cross braces. Ciepierski fell and as a result broke four ribs, tore a knee and a shoulder and as a result can no longer work.
