A 37 year-old plumber was working at a job site when a large stack of drywall, weighing 85 to 110 pounds, fell on top of him. The plumber sustained serious personal injuries, including a broken right leg and fibular factures.
The plumber alleged that the subcontractor had improperly stored the drywall and had thus created a workplace hazard. He also alleged that the general contractor failed to adequately coordinate the work inspections that were done at the job site.
Although the defendants argued that the placement of the drywall was in accordance with industry practice and standards, and that the plaintiff caused the drywall to fall by moving it himself, the parties eventually settled the negligence and tort suit for $550,000.
