A Suffolk County jury has awarded $2,025,000 to an iron worker who suffered a disabling shoulder injury on a construction site. The injured worker, Lee Arnold, was working at the Blackstone Valley Water Treatment facility in September, 2009, when he slipped and fell on debris that had been left in a walkway. Mr. Arnold alleged in the suit that employees working for the general contractor, Walsh Construction Company, had left the debris on a catwalk, in violation of job site safety standards. Mr. Arnold suffered a severe injury to his shoulder and ultimately underwent three surgeries but has been left with a permanent impairment that renders him unable to return to iron work. An economist testified that Mr. Arnold’s economic loss was in excess of $1.6 million. According to Mr. Arnold’s attorneys, Claudine Cloutier and Loren Laskoski, of Keches Law Group, in Taunton, the verdict will be reduced because the jury also found that Mr. Arnold was partially at fault for the incident.
