John M. Vlasac, Jr. obtains million-dollar settlement for a worker injured as a result of negligent maintenance on a commercial property

On or about December 17, 2017, our client a 60-year-old plumber, was assisting his employer in opening a large, metal, sliding gate in the work yard, when the gate fell off the track and onto the plaintiff. Partner, John M. Vlasac, Jr., Esq. through key witnesses and expert testimony was able to establish that the defendant was negligent and careless in the maintenance of the sliding gate which ultimately caused the gate to fall and strike the plaintiff. As a result, the plaintiff was caused to sustain hip fractures, a lumbar vertebral fracture and disk herniations leading to both hip and lower back surgeries. Mr. Vlasac was able to settle our client’s claim for a total of $1,250,000.00 shortly after he was finished with treatment and well before trial.

Partner, John M. Vlasac, Jr., Esq. is pleased to have been able to obtain this recovery on behalf of our client and his family.
