Worker will receive $6.5 million for accident

An Ecuadorian worker receives $6.5 million in compensation at a construction site for being hit by a vehicle while working on a demolition. The worker’s attorney Christopher Gorayeb sued the driver of the vehicle and the owner of the building and the construction company in charge of the demolition for not following safety measures and construction laws of having a physical barrier and signs indicating when people are working.

The worker’s co-worker who was also injured in the same accident hired another lawyer but he only won $80,000 for his injuries because they did not recognize that the laws that exist to protect construction workers also protected them in this accident. The other attorney only sued the owner and driver of the vehicle that hit the workers involved in the accident.
