March 18th, 2021 by

Jose Urena was a union construction worker and truck driver. While at work, he was loading the back of his truck with construction materials. Like many construction workers and truck drivers, he was not given adequate safety equipment as required by New York’s Labor Laws. Suddenly, Mr. Urena was bumped by the materials being loaded. He lost his balance and began to fall. Without any safety equipment provided to him, Mr. Urena fell from his truck bed down to the street.

Mr. Urena sustained injuries to his left shoulder, back, and neck resulting in a surgery. Mr. Urena was unable to work and needed help. He needed highly skilled attorneys familiar with construction site accidents. His worker’s compensation attorney knew to call Hill & Moin LLP, a firm which has helped thousands of hurt workers obtain serious compensation for their injuries. The highly skilled and experienced attorneys at Hill & Moin obtained Mr. Urena a $625,000 settlement for his case.

When asked about his experience with Hill & Moin, he described that he was, “impressed with how hard they fought for me.” He explained how informed he felt every time he called. Now, Mr. Urena plans on seeing his family in the Dominican Republic for the first time in four years. With this settlement, he hopes to open a hotel in Santiago. Mr. Urena states he would “100% recommend Hill & Moin to his friends and family”.
