A settlement of nearly $3 million has been secured for an aviation mechanic who was injured by doing his job. The Pasadena-based Law Offices of Pius Joseph - Personal Injury Attorney acquired the $2.7 million settlement after their client was struck by a loaded luggage tag, leaving him with a mild traumatic brain injury as well as orthopedic injuries.

The tug was operated by an airport contractor employee who allegedly violated FAA and airport rules by driving into the circle of safety and under the jet bridge. The victim says the driver did not have the mandatory training to drive on airport grounds and was driving with excessive speed when he lost control of the tug and struck the victim and another mechanic. Attorney Pius Joseph says this case is an example of how important it is for employers to make sure their workers are properly trained.

He says: "It is imperative that employers be held accountable to provide their workers with adequate training to ensure a safe working environment for everyone evolved."

He goes on to say: "We are very glad we were able to represent and recover for this man, so he could be compensated for the injuries and pain he has had to go through as a result of another party's negligence." Attorney Joseph is a third-generation lawyer who has represented individuals and businesses for more than 30 years, particularly in the area of catastrophic injuries.
