Helping Injury Victims Get the Compensation They Deserve
When you’re injured in an accident, it can be hard to know where to turn. You need someone who doesn’t just know the law. You need a lawyer who will fight for you to recover the compensation that you need and deserve. For over 35 years, we have represented accident victims and their families to help them maximize their recoveries.
Recovered In Electrical Explosion
An electrician was badly burnt in an industrial workplace accident when he inadvertently came in contact with an undetected underground utility line and sustained significant second and third degree burns in the ensuing flash explosion. He endured multiple skin grafting surgeries, split-thickness grafts and suffered permanent and debilitating injuries. The lawsuit was mediated privately where he received a $5 million recovery.
Recovered For Sexual Assault Victim
A disabled student suffered emotional and physical harm when he was sexually abused by a school employee over a period of time. Prosecuting the student’s claim against his former educators was complicated due to the lack of physical evidence and the limited intellectual capacity of the victim. After several years of litigation, and shortly before trial, the matter was settled for $1.4 million.
Awarded For Workplace Injury
A journeyman electrician working in a ceiling was injured when he fell from a defective ladder. He sustained severe wrist injuries from the fall, ending his career and subsequently suffered two failed wrist surgeries. Following a lengthy, contentious mediation, the matter was settled for $3 million.
Recovered in Propane Explosion
Two laborers sustained second and third degree burns over 60% of their bodies when a defective gas system allowed propane to settle in a basement where they were working. The victims underwent multiple surgical procedures and the matter was ultimately tried to a jury, which awarded the two men $5.7 million. After a victorious appeal, the matter was settled for $6 million.
Awarded to Workman
A handyman who was installing an outdoor carport at a residence was severely burned when a piece of metal trim he was lifting came into contact with high voltage wires that were impermissibly close to the ground. He sustained significant burn injuries which rendered him permanently disfigured. The lawsuit led to a $1.8 million recovery for the workman.
Recovery For Roofer
A craftsman fell 30 feet from a slate roof due to a lack of proper safety equipment. He sustained a collapsed lung and multiple fractures, resulting in a lengthy and painful recovery and rehabilitation. After protracted litigation, the matter was settled for $3.5 million.
Awarded To Estate
A 17 year old student died in a devastating car crash in which he was the passenger in a vehicle rollover. New York law severely limits recovery for individuals with no earning history, however the matter was able to be decided in Connecticut to allow the student’s family to recover damages for “loss of enjoyment of life.” The Estate recovered $1.3 million.
Recovery For Adolescent
A young girl was severely burned while showering in her family’s apartment after the landlord negligently failed to install a “scald-guard.” She sustained painful, permanent and disfiguring scars to her lower extremities. The young girl was awarded $1.5 million for past and future pain and suffering.
Awarded to Iron Worker
An iron worker suffered severe facial burns when a piece of hot metal slag flew into an exposed waste oil tank, resulting in an explosion. The victim was transported to the hospital where he underwent multiple lengthy and painful surgical procedures. The matter resulted in a $3.3 million recovery.
Recovered for Young Worker
A young quarry worker was seriously injured while working on a conveyor belt which malfunctioned. He sustained significant damage ultimately resulting in the amputation of his finger and complete disfigurement of his hand. The matter was litigated for several years before it ultimately resulted in a $1.5 million recovery for the young worker.
