A jury in Scott County, Wisconsin, has awarded more than $7 million to a Wisconsin man who fell three stories in a construction accident in Le Claire. The jury ruled for Allen Frohne, who suffered permanent injuries in a fall that occurred during construction of a Holiday Inn Express in 2005. He was injured when a lift tipped over. Mr. Frohne had been hired as a sub-contractor to do the gutter work on the project. During the trial, an expert testified that eight OSHA violations occurred at the construction site. The judgment was against Le Claire Hotel Group and Gibbs Construction.
