Sample Settlement in this Area

Our client was awarded a verdict of $700,000 by a jury in New York Supreme Court in 2002 after he had fallen down the basement stairs at his job and hit his head on the floor. He later began having seizures which we proved were the result of hitting his head in the accident. Although the defendant’s expert testified that he cannot have suffered seizures from such a minor head injury, we convinced the jury through the plaintiff’s treating neurologist that the fall was the cause of the seizure disorder which required him to take anticonvulsant medication to stop the seizures.
