Morgan & Murphy, LLP Recovers $242,000 Settlement for Injured Energy Auditor

Founding Partner, Dale M. Morgan recently recovered a $242,000 combined workers compensation and negligence settlement on behalf of an energy auditor who was injured while performing an inspection at a private home. This settlement was recently highlighted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. While carrying out the inspection in an upstairs loft, the plaintiff fell backwards down a flight of stairs that lacked handrails. Due to the accident, she sustained a significant knee injury. Just eight weeks before the accident, the plaintiff had received a total knee replacement in the same knee. Following the accident, the plaintiff required partial revision surgery.

Our New Bedford personal injury attorneys were able to push back against the defense’s claims that the hazard was open and obvious. The defense also argued that the homeowner was not negligent in not having railings, as the home predated that building code. Morgan & Murphy was able to demonstrate causation between the plaintiff’s aggravated knee pain/knee injury and the dangerous property condition, resulting in a combined workers’ compensation and third-party settlement in the amount of $242,000.
