Verdict & Settlements


$7,640,000 Verdict – Following trial in the Bronx a jury awarded our Putnam county Plaintiff $7,640,000.00 for injuries he suffered working at a NYC construction site. The defendants appealed to a five Judge panel in Manhattan and several years later most of the award was upheld and with added interest we collected in excess of $8,000,000. The award included $700,000.00 for the construction worker’s wife.


$3,900,000.00  settlement for a widow whose husband died as a result of medical malpractice committed by a vascular surgeon. This case took longer than normal as at the first trial the Judge actually dismissed the case. We appealed and the appellate court reversed the trial Judge and reinstated the case. We settled as we were about to select a jury on a retrial.


$2,000,000 –  A Judge in Putnam County, at a bench trial, awarded our client $2,000,000.00 for injuries resulting in an assault at a bar. This was part of a dram shop claim.


$315,000 –  A Federal jury in Manhattan (which included an FBI agent) awarded our retired Westchester County police officer $315,000.00 including punitive damages (very rare) for aggravation of a prior shoulder injury he received when a local police officer shoved him into a wall at a high school basketball game. Defendants appealed to the U.S. Second Circuit Court and the verdict was upheld.
