A construction worker who suffered spinal injuries after a fall at a building under construction settled his Middlesex County suit, Pinho v. Meridia Metro Hackensack, for $1.265 million on March 21.

Moises Pinho, a mason foreman for a concrete contractor, was working on construction of a seven-story condominium building in Hackensack on Dec. 20, 2013, when he tripped on a rebar mat form and injured his back, his suit claimed.

Pinho sustained a herniated disc at L2-L3, and annular tears at L3-L4 and L5-S1. In April 2014, he underwent a discectomy at L2-L3 and in September 2015 underwent a laminectomy at L4-L5. He has been unable to work at his previous job since the accident and claimed $300,000 in lost wages, said his attorney, Gerald Clark of the Clark Law Firm in Belmar.
