Summary:A Manhattan man, Marvin Charney, and his wife, Marie, were awarded $3,088,500 for a work-related accident in which he suffered a herniated disk that had to be removed, according to the article in the Staten Island Advance. The accident-tripping over a loose tile while walking to answer a phone-also caused brain damage that resulted in permanent visual impairment. Thomas Moore argued the case for the Charneys, citing the owner of the building as responsible for the accident because the owner had failed to repair the tile.
