A 21-year-old carpenter fell from a wooden scaffold and sustained a depressed skull fracture and brain injury. We took the case to trial alleging negligence on the part of the site's general contractor.
Result: The jury agreed with us and awarded $3.5 million to our client. It was the largest single injury verdict in San Mateo County history.
