About this Episode

We just had a major win for a client that demonstrates how a creative application of workers’ compensation law saved a New York staffing firm from a major civil verdict in a case where the lent employee harmed the employee of the general employer, causing significant injuries and leading to a civil action.

In a stunning civil case where a jury verdict of millions of dollars was likely, Christopher Major won a complete dismissal via summary judgment. We obtained this result even after prior defense counsel had recommended settlement and failed to raise workers’ compensation exclusivity as an affirmative defense.
