Testimonials & Case Results

  • "A worker was loading a logging truck and was not given the proper safety equipment.  He fell off the truck and sustained injury.  A high six figure settlement was negotiated for the client and this case expanded the scope of liability under the Labor Law in New York to include falls off trucks."

  • "After orthopedic knee surgery, a man called his surgeon’s private office complaining of chest pain.   The surgeon’s office failed to respond appropriately to the complaints which were of an emergency nature and the man died of pulmonary embolism the next day.  A significant settlement was negotiated on behalf of his family during the trial."

  • A young woman underwent a bunionectomy performed by a Podiatrist which was performed improperly, leaving her foot disfigured and leaving her in more pain than she had been in before the surgery.  The Podiatrist agreed to a significant six figure settlement shortly prior to trial.
