A Business Insurance Agent Helps You Plan against Serious Work Hazards
On May 16, 2013, Hugo Hernandez Palomino, 28, was working on scaffolding when he was hit by a transformer. The force hurled him 8 feet into the air and down to the concrete surface below, paralyzing him from the neck down. The workers were told that the transformer had been de-energized when in fact, it had not. Palomino sued for negligence and was awarded $21.7 million for medical care, as well as for past and future lost wages.
