Client M.O. was a hard working laborer installing trusses on a roof. He was injured when he was knocked from the roof by falling trusses, due to the negligent operation of the crane being used to lift the trusses. There were no workers compensation benefits available and the crane operator denied liability and the homeowner was acting as her own contractor. After extended litigation and multiple litigation, the issues of who was liable under workers compensation law were resolved and both the crane operator and the homeowner contributed to the settlement at a third mediation.
