LABOR LAW VERDICT: $ 2.19 million

Mar 30, 2001 | New York Law Journal Tiziano Sozzi v. Gramercy Realty Company No. 2 LP 22523/98 March 15
Kings Supreme

JUDGE: Ira B. Harkavy

ATTORNEYS: Andy F. of Parker & Waichman, Great Neck.
Elsa Rodriguez Preston of McDonald, Carroll, Cohen & Rayhill, Manhattan.

FACTS: Tiziano Sozzi, a 38-year-old painter and plasterer, was injured on March 26, 1998 at 2 p.m. when the ladder he was working on collapsed and he fell 4 to 6 feet to the ground. At the time he was painting an apartment at 240 East 21st Street in Manhattan. He was granted summary judgment on liability, pursuant to Labor Law @ 240(1), and the trial proceeded on damages.

Injuries: Herniated cervical and lumbar discs; laceration to the right cheek, resulting in a 2.5-inch scar. Gramercy Realty claimed he was exaggerating his injuries, which, it claimed, were degenerative in nature.

Disbursements: $ 160,000 for past pain and suffering; $ 98,000 for past lost earnings; $ 19,531 for past medical expenses (stipulated); $ 958,000 for future pain and suffering; $ 800,000 for future lost earnings; $ 150,000 for future medical expenses.
