Catastrophic personal injuries require just compensation

Serious personal injuries call for sizable verdicts and settlements. Our founding firm’s membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is no coincidence. A review of some of our Manhattan law firm’s recent verdicts provides a sobering perspective.

For example, a recent pedestrian accident involving a bus and a traumatic brain injury resulted in a $2.7 million dollar settlement. A $1.5 million dollar settlement resolved a slip-and-fall case involving a claim of negligent maintenance against the property owner. A construction worker injured by a fall in an elevator shaft recently obtained a $2.225 million dollar settlement to help defray pain and suffering and medical costs.

What can we learn from those outcomes? A jury’s actions can never be predicted with absolute certainty, and not every personal injury case will seek millions of dollars. However, when there are catastrophic injuries, our law firm is not afraid to seek the compensation that an injured victim deserves.

Our firm’s experience in the courtroom allows us to make informed assessments of an injured plaintiff’s potential claim value. In addition, our firm’s founding partner started out as an attorney working for the City of New York, litigating personal injury claims. That perspective is useful in understanding how the other party might value the case and view the litigation risks of taking the personal injury claim to trial.

When another individual’s negligence causes you injury, you may have life-altering injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and many other distractions to contend with. Let an experienced attorney handle the legal burden of bringing a claim against that individual in a civil lawsuit.
