Premise Liability: Improper Ladder Flips Mechanic from 737 Plane ($700,000 Settlement)
Our client was an airplane mechanic who fell from a parked 737 aircraft while it was being serviced at Evergreen, one of the nation's largest aircraft maintenance centers. We proved that the defendant improperly staged the aircraft for repair and chose an inadequate ladder for entry and exit. Our client suffered a badly broken non-dominant hand which led to the onset of RSD, a permanent, very painful nervous system condition. The defendant settled for over $700,000.
