May 14 - May 20, 2012

An experienced industrial painter crippled in a 40-foot fall was recently awarded $2.3 million for his injuries, although he was not wearing fall protection. What do you think of this jury verdict?


Bad call: Companies shouldn’t have to pay for workers’ bad choices.
A little overboard. Some award is OK, but that’s way too much.
Good call: The site supervisor should have enforced safety procedures.
