$350,000 Settlement: Premises Liability/Worker’s Compensation Immunity

While on the job at a saw mill, our client had his foot crushed when the machine on which he was cleaning started due to a mechanical malfunction of which his employer had failed to repair and of which the employer had previous knowledge. This injury resulted in multiple surgeries and several hospitalizations. Even so, our client unfortunately lost much of the function of his foot, and it was left terribly misshapen and painful. Our attorneys were successful in establishing that the conduct of the employer was egregious enough to prevent the employer from asserting its worker’s compensation immunity from liability.
