Civil Litigation

The most recent results:

  • $1,335,000 Dollar settlement to construction worker who injured his back while using a jackhammer.  Settlement achieved through novel approach asserting claims that a worker should not have been permitted to work in contorted position causing his back to be strained and herniated.  We successfully defeated a defense motion to dismiss our case wherein the defendants claimed there were no viable legal theories upon which our client could recover.  The settlement helps our client, his wife and their young daughter to regain normalcy in their lives (October 2017).
