A worker injured in 2005 while installing equipment in IKEA, the giant home goods retailer in Atlantic Station in Midtown, has won a $2 million verdict from a Fulton County State Court jury. William Bradley Hall had sued Vratsinas Construction Co., the general contractor of the project, for damages after he fell from a ladder and injured his knee while installing a security system in the store. According to details in the lawsuit, Hall says he was only using a ladder to pull wires from the ceiling grid after a supervisor from Vratsinas instructed him not to use a scissor lift because another worker had damaged the ceiling while using the equipment that provides a raised platform on which to stand.
Hall’s fall resulted in multiple surgeries, including a total knee replacement surgery and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. He also accrued medical bills and lost wages because of resulting arthritis and nerve damage.
