Levesque v. C.H. Nickerson & Co., Inc. (Bridgeport Superior Court – filed May 11, 2018)  On August 26, 2016, ironworker James Levesque, received severe and disabling brain damage while installing rebar at a water treatment facility in Farmington, CT.   Suddenly, and without warning, a carelessly untethered and/or unfastened abandoned steel bracket, mis-applied by defendant Nickerson Construction, associated with the project’s concrete forming system fell from high above striking Levesque in the head.  Despite wearing all protective gear and a hard hat, he sustained blunt traumatic injuries to his head and body.  Nearly two years after the completely preventable misconduct Levesque remains significantly impaired. He has not only lost wages, but also his capacity to remain employed in a competitive job market. Due to Nickerson’s failure to provide a safe and secure work-site, Levesque has incurred and will continue to incur expenses for medical care, treatment, therapy, and rehabilitative support, services and equipment, and can no longer participate in the daily activities he formerly enjoyed.  Due to the extent of his traumatic injuries Levesque became a conserved person by order of the Connecticut Probate Court.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
