$24.8 Million Awarded by Philadelphia Jury for Man Who Fell Through Skylight

Construction Accident

In June of 2016, a 43 year old man was working alone on the roof of an auto body shop in Aston when tragically he tripped and fell 25 feet through a skylight onto the concrete floor below. As a result of this accident, he suffered severe and permanent brain damage. At trial, our attorneys argued that the defendants (the landlord and tenant) were negligent because they were aware the skylights were dangerous and did nothing to remedy the situation. Furthermore, counsel argued that screens, which now cover the 8 skylights on the auto body roof, could have easily been installed and prevented the injuries to our client.
