A 44 year old demolition worker from Central America was injured when a brick wall that was being dismantled collapsed and fell on him.  The worker sustained a fracture to his skull that required surgery and a brain injury that made it difficult for him to return to work.  Steven Dorfman successfully argued that violations of the Labor Law of the State of New York caused the incident, making a trial on liability unecessary.  On the eve of trial (damages only,) Steven Dorfman and Bryce Moses were able to negotiate a $ 3 million settlement which included a lost wages component, in spite of the fact that the injured worker no longer possessed persmission to work in the Country.  The settlement also included the resolution of a workers' compensation lien in the approximate amount of $275,000.00.
