A New York City Police Officer received a $500,000 settlement from the City of New York. The Officer was assigned to a specialized detail which duties included installing and removing audio visual equipment from commands. The Officer was assigned to remove and replace a large screen television with another Officer. Both Officers were on a ladder on each side of the television when one of the Officers allowed the weight of the television to shift causing the other Officer to fall off the ladder. The fall caused the Officer to hyperextend his shoulder, tearing his right shoulder rotator cuff. The injury required surgery and the Officer was subsequently awarded a ¾ line-of-duty disability pension. The Officer retained DCD who immediately filed a notice of claim against the City within the 90-day time limitation. DCD then sued the City of New York pursuant to General Municipal Law Section 205-e alleging the City violated Sections 27-a(3), 240(1), 241(b) and 200(1) of the Labor Law, Section 28-301.1 of the New York City Administrative Code and Section 153.19 of the New York City Health Code. Dominic DiPrisco settled the case for $500,000 at a pre-trial conference.
