Sam Lynn Secures $1.57 Million for his Client

Sam Lynn

Miguel Romero v. Pro-Build Holdings Inc.

Miguel Romero, an owner and employee of Romero Contractors, a drywall finishing company, was injured while on a construction site on which he was working in December of 2009. Mr. Romero fell through a hole that had been covered with a single piece of plywood which was neither secured nor marked in any way.

As a result of the injury, Mr. Romero sustained major injuries, including:

  • A comminuted fracture in his left humerus (the long bone between your shoulder and your elbow)
  • A compression fracture of his L1 vertebrae (a spinal fracture)
  • Fractures in both his pelvis and sacrum (the bone located on your lower spine between your hip bones)

Due to the severity of his injuries and the complexity of the case, Mr. Romero decided to hire Sam Lynn to represent him against Pro-Build Holdings, the company that failed to secure the piece of plywood over the hole. After over four years of representation and a hard fought trial, Mr. Lynn obtained a jury verdict in Prince George’s County Circuit Court in the amount of $1,573, 066.84. Broken down, the verdict read:

  • $63,066.84 to pay for past medical expenses
  • $150,000 for past last earnings
  • $360,000 for future lost wages
  • $1,000,000 in non-economic damages.

Congratulations to both Mr. Romero and to Sam Lynn on this well deserved victory.
