Marc Rothenberg, Partner in The Rothenberg Law Firm LLP, won an $11.5 million settlement at trial for construction worker Alejandro Alpirez in Alpirez v. WBB Construction, Inc. et al. The settlement is one of the largest awards in New York this year for an individual construction worker.
On February 11, 2008, Mr. Alpirez, then 37, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury on a construction site when an improperly-secured large metal pipe broke from the ceiling, hit him in the head and caused him to fall from an unsecured scaffold to the ground, landing on his head. Mr. Alpirez sustained a traumatic brain injury, lost the sight in his right eye and suffered numerous other disabling neurological and cognitive impairments.
The suit Mr. Rothenberg brought on behalf of Mr. Alpirez charged Tessler Developments LLC and 1107 Broadway LLC (the building owners) and WBB Construction, Inc. (the general contractor) with negligence. Those defendants brought in Mr. Alpirez’s employer — All Waste Interiors LLC — as a third party defendant. In addition to the $11.5 million settlement, Mr. Rothenberg secured a total waiver of a more-than $300,000 Workers’ Compensation lien for Mr. Alpirez.
