Jacob Oresky & Associates, PLLC is proud to announce that Joshua Goldblatt, Esq., won a jury verdict in favor of one our clients today in the amount of $450,000. Our client, a Bronx resident and roofer, was injured when he fell from a one story roof, suffering a broken wrist. The fall was caused by the defendant building owner’s failure to provide any safety equipment which could have prevented his fall.
These types of roofing accidents happen all too often. Building owners find companies that will do the work for the lowest price. In order to cut costs many of these budget roofing companies cut corners, and do not provide adequate safety for their workers on the roof. Working on a roof is dangerous, and proper protection should be provided.
