Featured Cases

The following featured cases exemplify our strong commitment to fight for justice and fair financial compensation for our clients. The list is illustrative, and does not reflect the many other settlements, awards and jury verdicts which are too numerous to list. One should keep in mind that prior results on cases do not guarantee a similar outcome.

Confidential Premises Fall Settlement for a pedestrian injured when she fell in a building. Due to the significant settlement amount, the defendants’ insurance company and attorneys insisted the settlement and details of this case be kept confidential.

Confidential Construction Accident Settlement for a worker injured when he fell at a construction job site. Before jury trial and verdict in this case, the defendants’ insurance companies refused to make any settlement offer.  We then won a significant verdict in favor of our client that was one of the highest jury verdicts in New York State involving a construction accident in that particular year as reported by New York Law Journal’s Top Verdicts.The case settled shortly thereafter for a substantial amount which the defendants’ insurance companies and attorneys insisted be kept confidential.

$3,750,000.00 Settlement – Wrongful Death Due to Defective Product – settlement for the family of a 40 year old man who died after a cylinder of MAPP gas he was using exploded due to design and manufacturing defects.  Not only was this settlement one of the highest of its kind obtained against this major cylinder manufacturer (a Fortune 500 corporation) which had fought multiple lawsuits against it in courts throughout the United States brought by different law firms representing persons injured due to defects in its cylinders, but it was also one of the highest settlements in New York State involving a defective product in that particular year as reported by New York Law Journal’s Top Verdicts.  The cylinder design has since changed and improved, and the specific defects have been redressed, thereby enhancing the safety for consumers and end users of this product.

$2,400,000.00 Settlement – Defective Product Leading to Severe Burns – settlement for a handyman severely burned after vapors from an adhesive he was using ignited by a stove pilot light. To prove this complex products liability case against the adhesive manufacturer and other parties, we consulted and worked with renowned experts from Princeton University and Rutgers University, as well as other experts.  The labeling of the adhesive container has since changed and improved, and the specific defects have been redressed, thereby enhancing the safety for consumers and end users of this product.
