Some Recent Settlements -- A Car Accident and A Work Accident

$2.1 million Settlement - Mother of Two Struck and Killed by Motorist

StolzenbergCortelli LLP recently resolved a heart breaking wrongful death action. The mother of two was struck and killed, while she crossed a roadway. We were able to locate a video capturing the events leading up to the accident by way of a video surveillance system setup across the street in a neighboring commercial establishment. The video, when analyzed by our expert, confirmed that the defendant driver was speeding.

$525,000 for a Teamster Injured When the Trailer upon which He was Standing Collapsed

Our client was a teamster, working at a concrete plant in Westchester, when he was seriously injured.  At the time, our client was standing on a trailer, which is colloquially known as a "low boy", when the wooden slats upon which he was standing, collapsed. He injured his knee and he ultimately had to undergo a total knee replacement. Many defenses were raised during the course of this litigation, including that he never fell, that he should not have been standing on the lowboy (even though part of his job according to his boss was to sweep off the trailers in the yard), and that his knee injury was pre-existing. Defendants maintained that they were never going to pay on this case throughout the pendency of the action. However, in the weeks prior to when the trial was about to start, defendants caved and finally offered $525,000 to settle.
