Connecticut Ironmonger Receives Compensation for Knee Injury

A Connecticut ironmonger who was injured while working for a railway company has been awarded in excess of $140,000 for a knee injury he sustained while working on the Metro-North Railroad. Bill Ordner, from New Haven, Connecticut, was awarded the settlement having been forced to turn down a promotion because of his injury. Metro-North Railroad denied liability for the injury, claiming that the injury was not work related. Bill was awarded a further $2,000 to cover the cost of his medical bill. The award was made the Connecticut Occupational Health and Safety Administration.
