$1.8 Mil. Settlement for Fall During Stadium Demolition

“…A man who suffered a career-ending back injury after falling through the second floor of Veterans Stadium while operating a Caterpillar front loader during the site’s demolition reaches a $1.88 million settlement with the general contractor in charge of the new stadium’s construction. The root cause of Gilmore’s injury, Laffey said, was that neither Driscoll/Hunt nor Brandenburg checked for structural soundness prior to Gilmore operating the front loader on the second floor. The responsibility for that slip up, he said, ultimately falls with Driscoll/Hunt.”
