Orchard Park Man Who Had Old Pine Ave Light Pole Dropped on Foot to get $20,000

May 13, 2014

An Orchard Park man will receive a $20,000 payment from the City of Niagara Falls after a city worker dropped a light pole on his foot.

Unlucky Bradley R. Day went to the city's Department of Public Works yard on New Road in July 2012. He planned to buy used street light poles that the city collected when they replaced them on Pine Avenue.

They were being sold in lots of 10. Day paid the price the city asked and was being assisted in loading them on his truck when lamentably a worker accidentally dropped a pole on Day's foot, breaking his foot as well as three toes.

Day sued.

City attorney Craig Johnson recommended that the city  settle the case, and so they did - for $20,000.

The settlement was unanimously approved by the City Council in late April. Day will be getting his check soon.
