In August 2008, attorneys John M. Dodig and Jason A. Daria obtained a $13.3 million settlement for Jose Alves, a 33-year-old carpenter who fell at an office building construction site in Lionville, Chester County on February 15, 2005.
Mr. Alves was injured after a roof truss he was installing broke, causing him to fall 14 feet. A lawsuit was filed against eight Defendants, including the general contractor, carpentry contractor, crane company, safety company, truss manufacturer, installation drawing designer, and distributor of the truss. These companies contributed to a global settlement of $13.3 million.
With the compromise of the worker’s compensation lien, the total recovery to Mr. Alves will exceed $15 million. The settlement monies will be used to provide care to Mr. Alves for the rest of his life.
