Recognized as one of the Top 100 personal injury settlements in the United States 2019. Attorneys Lawrence A. LeBrocq and Ayanna Countee from Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, P.C. recovered $1.8 million for an undocumented worker who sustained severe head and neck injuries in a forklift incident while working in Jamesburg, New Jersey.
The worker was operating a forklift on a ramp to lift a co-worker to the roof, which was an accepted practice on this jobsite. However, the defendant responsible for maintaining and inspecting the forklift neglected its duty and failed to discover that the forklift was missing essential parts. Due to the missing parts, the forklift operator sustained injuries to his cervical spine requiring two surgeries and extensive physical therapy. He now lives with permanent scarring to his head and neck. He also lost substantial time from work and is now limited in his ability to work.
The case settled during the middle of trial. Throughout the litigation the attorneys from Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq fought the insurance company attorneys to bring the case to trial. These attorneys assigned to represent the defendants sought to take advantage of legal loopholes to avoid taking responsibility. To that end, the defendants and their insurance companies tried to blame the worker for the accident. Our attorneys utilized their vast legal knowledge to overcome these challenges to force the responsible party to be held accountable in a court of law before a judge and jury.
After a full week of trial, recognizing the relentlessness of the attorneys from Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, they achieved a substantial settlement of $1.8 million.
