$195,000 Workers Compensation for Union Carpenter
A 55 year old carpenter’s local 250 member has recovered a $195,000 wage differential settlement, according to his lawyer Douglas Rallo of Libertyville.
While working on a demolition project, the claimant stripped the studs and backing off one side of a wall he was working on. He was in a hurry to complete the job and forgot he had done so. He placed a ladder on the opposite side of the wall, which was unsupported by the studs he had removed. When he climbed the ladder, it went through the drywall, entangling his legs in the ladder, injuring his knee and shoulder.
