A Pawling man has won a $1.75 million settlement for injuries he received in a 1999 accident at his work place.

Mario Socci Jr. was injured while working at a block manufacturing plant in Brewster. While he was making adjustments to a mold that forms the blocks, a machine manufactured by German firm, Masa Aktiengesellschaft, was unexpectedly activated, crushing Socci's leg.

Socci's case was scheduled to go to trial in U.S. District Court in Manhattan but the German company agreed to the $1.75 million settlement last month.

Socci was represented in the lawsuit by the law firm of Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP

Elliot S. Tetenbaum, a partner in the firm, represented Socci.
