Under New York law, individuals who are able to prove that negligence of another caused their injuries can recover compensation for the harm they suffered.
Palermo Tuohy Bruno, P.L.L.C. brought a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of New York State to recover damages for a 49-year-old construction worker who was injured on a construction site located in front of a building on First Avenue in New York City. A van crashed into a road construction barrier, causing a piece of the barrier to propel into the worker’s back. The man suffered herniated discs that eventually required surgery. He was not able to return to work following the accident.
Steven Palermo, the firm’s managing partner stated. “Our firm is happy to have obtained a fair settlement for our client. Just prior to trial, we were able to settle the matter at mediation.” He added, “Mediation can benefit clients not only because the process is voluntary and non binding, but it is also less stressful than a trial. In addition, mediation often produces great results; especially in cases like this one in which the defendants understood that we had a strong case and they did not want to go to trial.”
