“A union carpenter who was wearing a full body harness while constructing a concrete column at a site in Philadelphia will receive $2.5 million in settlements after he fell six feet when the hook portion of the harness broke. … [T]hrough his attorney … Jeffrey F. Laffey, [he] argued the hook was not well engineered or manufactured and contained a fatal manufacturing defect that led to the hook fracturing and breaking. By the end of the first day [of settlement negotiations], Laffey said [the defendants] knew that they needed to get to his demand of $2.5 million.”
