Plaintiff, a 53 year-old insulator, allegedly slipped and fell on oil that had leaked onto the ground while working at a Westchester County, NY power plant. This matter recently settled for $650,000 at mediation.
Plaintiff claimed that the owner/operator of the plant, Entergy, was negligent in its maintenance of the premises, and that its negligence created a dangerous condition.
He sustained a herniation of his C5-6 intervertebral disc, fractures of ribs and a tear of one shoulder’s rotator cuff. He underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair the rotator cuff and fusion of a portion of his lumbar spine. He has not returned to work and still requires physicial therapy 6 years after the incident.
