$900,000.00 — For a 70 year old man who was hit by a car crossing a four lane roadway in Queens, NY. He suffered a broken leg and collapsed lung requiring surgery. The defendant and his insurance company argued that the man was intoxicated and caused the accident himself by walking into traffic. According to the records the plaintiff’s blood alcohol was three times the legal limit but we argued successfully that the driver was still at fault. The jury agreed and held the driver 100% accountable.
$475,000.00 — For a 21 year old woman who was struck by a car crossing the street in Suffolk County, NY. She sustained a broken leg and significant cosmetic injuries. The defense argued that she was intoxicated, which was confirmed by the medical records, and that she ran into traffic after leaving a bar to get a taxi waiting on the opposite side of the street.
$435,000.00 — For a man hit by a postal vehicle in Brooklyn and required back surgery. There were major issues in this case including the fact that the plaintiff had a prior injury to the same part of this back. Another issue was the fact that at the scene of the accident he walked away and then returned to the scene 15-20 minutes later making complaints of pain. Even with these potential problems we litigated the case and were able to achieve a great result.

The landlord argued that he simply missed a step on the way down the stairs and that the fall was his fault. We hired an engineer and were able to establish that the stairs were defective. The matter settled after jury selection moments before opening statements.
$300,000.00 — Verdict in Brooklyn for a man in a car accident who required knee surgery. In this case the defense argued that there was very minimal damage to both vehicles in what was a “stop and go” type accident. The defense also argued that plaintiff had prior knee injuries and a degenerative knee condition. They offered $25,000.00 the whole trial and we fought hard for our client insisting that the case was worth more.
