RAM Law Partner, Jay Mascolo, obtained a $188,000 settlement for a workers’ compensation claim of a young woman who had a safe fall on her while working. A 1,500 pound safe fell over and onto the RAM Law client’s legs while being loaded on a truck. Over 8 co-employees struggled to eventually lift the safe off of her legs and free her. She was immediately taken to the emergency room for multiple fractures to her hips and leg. She was admitted into the emergency room and rehabilitation center for two weeks following the accident.
It was also discovered that she sustained a significant low back herniated disc and pinched nerve as well as a contusion to her bladder. She underwent over three years of medical treatment and lost 18 months from work. The case resolved before a Judge in the Middlesex County Workers Compensation Court for a 60% partial total disability rating according to the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Statute.
