A roofer lost 40% vision in one eye when he was hit in the eye by a nail at the construction site. The insurer denied liability and we filed suit. The defense argued that the injury was the man’s own fault and that a 40% loss of vision was not significant.
We established that the construction site manager failed to supervise the site and failed to warn the roofer of the danger. We also demonstrated that the roofer’s loss of vision was a major loss to him – he could no longer enjoy playing basketball, seeing his daughter perform or watch a movie the same way. On the eve of trial, we achieved a $232,500 recovery.
