PHILADELPHIA – A contractor who suffered a nearly-amputated hand and fractured foot after a catastrophic accident on a Philadelphia construction site is suing the company involved for negligence-related damages.
Edward Majors and Elizabeth Majors of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 28 versus Aaron S. Weiner Construction, Inc., of Meadowbrook.
On Aug. 4, 2016, Edward was an independent contractor working at a job site at 3510 Scotts Lane, in the East Falls section of Philadelphia. He claims that a number of forms of professional negligence on the part of the defendant caused one of the construction company’s employees to mishandle a grinder saw and nearly amputate one of his hands, which in turn caused Edward to fall off the ladder he was standing on at the time and fracture his foot.
As a result, Edward allegedly suffered near-amputation of the hand, fracture of the foot and other severe injuries, plus shock, anxiety, depression, weakness, emotional distress and other physical and emotional injuries.
For negligence, third-party liability and loss of consortium, the plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of the arbitration limits, plus interest, costs and a trial by jury.
The plaintiffs are represented by Leonard P. Haberman of Clearfield & Kofsky, in Philadelphia.
