A Pennsylvania roofer who was left paralyzed when he fell through an asbestos concrete roof will be paid nearly $5 million in the settlement of a suit against the contractor that hired him and the owner of the building. He alleged he was never warned of the dangers the decaying roof posed.

In the suit, Mark Radick claimed that when he was hired as a subcontractor to finish a roofing repair at the Evans Heat Treating Co. plant, he wasn’t told of the extent of the damage the roof had suffered from a buildup of snow and ice or of the need to use fall-protection devices.
