Injured Elevator Technician Settles Suit Against New Jersey Building Owner for $2M
An elevator technician who was injured while working on a six-story building in New Jersey has settled his lawsuit against the building’s owner for more than $2 million.
Lawyers for Brett Riccio tell NJ.com the settlement was reached late last month.
Riccio was injured in 2014 when he stepped onto a metal grating on the roof of the building in Clinton that his lawyers said wasn’t properly secured. The grating came off its support, and Riccio hyper-extended his shoulders and sprained his knee while trying to save himself.
The firm says Riccio had surgery to repair his injuries and can no longer do his job.
