The $2.5 million jury verdict in Sullivan v. Werner Company and Lowe’s Companies, Inc. was recognized among The Legal Intelligencer’s Top 25 Verdicts of 2019. Laffey, Bucci & Kent founder Jeffrey Laffey and attorney Stewart Ryan represented the plaintiffs.
Michael Sullivan, a union carpenter, was working on a rolling steel scaffold at the Albert Schweitzer Elementary School in Levittown when the scaffolding platform dislodged and collapsed causing him to fall and land on his buttocks, breaking his tailbone. The accident also left Sullivan with two protruding spinal discs, which has prevented his return to work as a union carpenter.
Laffey has achieved multi-million-dollar recoveries on behalf of hundreds of injured union construction workers from all trades – including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, cement masons, ironworkers, laborers, and operating engineers.
