SETTLED for $1.5 million: A transit worker who suffered head injuries and cognitive loss when he was struck by a garage door that had been negligently installed.
SETTLED for $900,000: A 50 year old maintenance worker who fell from a roof. The case was originally been dismissed by a judge who found that the State had no liability. On appeal, the judge’s decision was reversed and the appeals court found the State 100% responsible.
SETTLED for $450,000: A 63 year old nurse’s aide slipped and fell on wet plywood that had been left by a company that was doing construction at his place of employment, injuring his neck and back injuries and disabling him from work.

VERDICT: A worker broke his wrist when the forklift he was operating fell into a gap between a truck and the loading dock.
