The Veen Firm Files Lawsuit: Maintenance Throws Air Conditioner Fan & Motor Off Rooftop, Severely Injuring Resident
Trial Team Leader Elinor Leary and Attorney Alexandra Hamilton filed a lawsuit on behalf of Viktor Fedchuk for negligence against PSP Property Maintenance, whose employee allegedly threw a 20-pound industrial fan/motor from the rooftop, striking Viktor in the head and causing severe injuries. The lawsuit states that during the repair of a rooftop air conditioner, a PSP Property Maintenance employee recklessly threw the industrial fan/motor from the rooftop instead of safely lowering it to the ground. The industrial fan/motor landed on Viktor’s head 25 feet below and resulted in serious head and neck injuries, which could have been prevented had the facility simply taken the proper steps to safely dispose of the air conditioning unit.
“PSP Property Maintenance and its employee have a legal duty to exercise ordinary and reasonable care to perform their work in a safe manner,” said Leary. “Instead, the defendants failed to take simple precautions and their negligence resulted in life altering injuries for Viktor.”
