A carpenter must take care to affix a front porch overhang into the support beams and not just the siding. Unfortunately, our client did not know the carpenter was so reckless and the overhang he was installing shingles to broke away from the house causing him to fall 25 feet. As a result, our client broke a bone in his back and missed 5 months of work. Fortunately, he did not require any surgery and is back to work full time. The case was settled 2 weeks before the scheduled trial in Staten Island for $200,000. The case was handled by Trial Partner Linda Epstein and Managing Attorney Ed Steves.
