Ameele, Klein Obtain Defense Verdict in Construction Accident Case

Keith Ameele and Lou Klein of the Los Angeles office of Foley & Mansfield successfully obtained a defense verdict on behalf of their client, a mechanical services contractor, in a severe construction accident case in Northern California.

Plaintiff sued the general contractor as a result of injuries sustained while working on a construction site. The general contractor in turn sued Foley & Mansfield’s client, a subcontractor, on a cross-claim. Importantly pursuant to the contract, if the jury found Foley & Mansfield’s client’s even 1% at fault, the client would have been responsible for the entire verdict.

After a four-week trial, the jury awarded the plaintiff over $2.6 million dollars in damages, finding that the general contractor was 100% liable for plaintiff’s injuries and that Foley & Mansfield’s client was not negligent in any respect.
