A 37-year-old Local Union 3, IBEW electrician was caused to slip and fall due to a snow and ice covered work surface. He injured his shoulder and neck requiring surgery for both. He did not return to work after the accident. The case settled on the eve of trial for $4,000,000, after an unsuccessful mediation where only $1,000,000 was offered. The defendant’s examining physicians and experts opined that the electrician could return to work, thus offsetting the loss of earning claim.
