Raphaelson & Levine Secures $1.1 Million Verdict for Victim of New York Construction Accident
Date:11/30/2009

Firm uses Staten Island courtroom to recreate scene of accident, persuades jury that defendants were 100% responsible for client’s accident.

New York (Lexis Nexis) November 30, 2009 -- A Staten Island, N.Y. jury awarded a verdict of $1,140,000 to a career union paperhanger who was injured at a New York City construction site in 2004.

The case, Sigismondi v. J.T. Magen Construction Company et al (Index No. 102557/05, Cal. No. 74046), centered around an accident that occurred when Mr. Sigismondi was carrying a large roll of wallpaper in an area of a construction site that was supposed to have been made safe for the many contractors working at the site. Mr. Sigismondi tripped on materials that should have been removed or safeguarded, suffering trauma to both knees that required arthroscopic surgery and knee replacements.

The plaintiff was represented by Howard Raphaelson, founder of The Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm and a highly regarded attorney who has successfully represented thousands of clients in various personal injury lawsuits.

According to Raphaelson, the defendant’s attorneys refused to consider settlement and insisted that a jury would hold Mr. Sigismondi at fault for the accident. Raphaelson’s legal team pressed on with the case to a jury trial, confident they could bring to bear their firm’s extensive resources and vast experience in personal injury litigation to prevail in the case.

“New York State laws have consistently upheld the rights of those who build, repair, restore and modernize the general infrastructure of our city, and these rights are recognized in labor laws that protect those injured during construction,” explained Raphaelson, who founded his New York City law firm in 1992. “In this case, we were able to use the courtroom to recreate the scene on the morning of the accident, visually illustrating how the contractors on the job site had failed to maintain a safe working environment. The jury agreed and held the defendants 100% responsible for our client’s accident.”
