Seriously Injured Worker Settles Case Against Contractor

May 14, 2008

On August 25, 2005, Luis Roman, a 38 year old resident of Colorado was working for a Colorado insulation subcontractor called MATO, which sent him temporarily to Laramie, Wyoming to work on a commercial building project for the Wyoming Technical Institute under the general contractor Delta Construction, a Wyoming Corporation. Luis fell through an unsecured 4 x 12 foot panel of sheet metal roofing covering an opening for an HVAC unit, a distance of 20 feet to the concrete slab floor.

We obtained a $1,800,000 settlement for Luis Roman, a 38 year-old resident of Colorado, was working for an insulation subcontractor. Luis fell 20 feet through an unsecured 4 x 12 foot panel of sheet metal roofing covering an opening for an HVAC unit, a distance of 20 feet to the concrete slab floor. He suffered fractured bones and a serious head injury in the fall. We unturned evidence that the roof was like a trap door. The collapsed roofing panel section was a result of a company's failure to secure the panel in violation of both OSHA regulations and recognized construction practices.
