A New York landscaper who lost his legs on the job has been awarded $11.2 million by a Westchester County jury. The landscaping company was found by the jury to be 60 percent liable for the worker’s injuries. Robert Loja, who worked for a landscaping company, was unloading a trailer on October 24, 2008, when he was struck by a car.
The driver said she was blinded by sun glare, hit a safety cone and a “men working” sign before striking Loja. The jury found the driver and her mother, who owned the car, 10 percent liable. The Plaintiff was found to be 30 percent liable for the crash, because the jurors found he could have parked the trailer in a safer place.
