Brooklyn construction worker Matthew Falcone, 53, was sent flying when a Verizon truck traveling 50 miles an hour hit him near his Gravesend home four years ago. The $40 million award will help Falcone, who suffered brain damage and is partially paralyzed, leave a Staten Island nursing home and move in with his sister. After the crash, Falcone was in a coma and not expected to survive. He spent weeks in the hospital. Verizon is considering an appeal, a spokesman said.
Many workers are injured on their job site on a daily basis. Working with cranes, forklifts, scaffolding, heavy equipment, and toxic chemicals, all pose danger to the hard working individuals who earn their living in the construction industry. Construction workers face some of the most dangerous working conditions in America. These dangers are increased when construction companies force employees to work overtime and under tight deadlines.
