$3.75 Million Settlement for Man Paralyzed After Falling Down Unguarded Elevator Shaft

A Maryland man suffered catastrophic injuries after entering a door to an unguarded elevator shaft on a construction site, causing him to fall three stories.

The man, who was working as a painter, was rendered paraplegic by the impact of the fall and now requires assisted living.

Schultz Law successfully represented the man in his construction accident case, demonstrating the general contractor of the building was clearly negligent in establishing a safe working environment.

As a result of the case, our client was awarded a $3.75 million settlement for his pain and suffering, as well as the costly medical care he will require for the rest of his life.
