Greenberg & Stein’s 5 Biggest Case Results

Every day across New York City, thousands of people are injured on the job, on their way to work, or in countless other common situations. Unfortunately, many of those injured don’t always realize that they may have legal recourse to seek out justice when those injuries were caused by the negligent actions of another person or business, and that they should reach out to a personal injury law firm.

However, when you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in New York City, you don’t want to work with just any law firm that you happen to come across. It is of critical importance that you select a law firm which has a proven track record of success when it comes to their case results.

Most personal injury lawsuits are settled out of court, but there are a small percentage of cases that go to trial, which is why you need a law firm who also has experience taking their cases in front of a judge and jury. There are a wide range of factors that affect the amount of compensation that a victim will receive, but it is the cases that go to trial that typically see the biggest case results.

Below are five of the biggest personal injury settlements represented by Greenberg & Stein, across a number of different types of personal injury cases.

Fall from Scaffolding

A laborer suffered facial and spinal fractures after falling from the job site scaffolding. Construction workers face some of the most dangerous jobs in New York City, and working on scaffolding at great heights is one of the chief reasons. This case result was reported by the New York Law Journal as one of the largest verdicts of the year.

Awarded $2,021,319

Slip and Fall in Train Station

In 2018, a 46-year-old home health aide sustained mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with Post Traumatic Seizures. This case goes to show that slip and fall cases can be so much more severe than a hurt back or other minor injury can have long term and severe repercussions that affect quality of life.

Awarded $2,700,000

Automobile Accident

The victim suffered a fractured skull and traumatic brain injury in a particularly grievous car wreck. While New York City is one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in the country, there are still thousands of people injured in automobile accidents every year.

Awarded $5,172,271

Hospital Slip and Fall

A fifty-year-old home health aide  in a hospital, resulting in severe neck and back injuries as well as knee injuries required surgery. This jury verdict was featured in New York Magazine’s top 25 Verdicts of the year.

Slip and Fall inside Apartment Building

$4,438,120 – The victim slipped and fell on tiles that fell off of the wall of her bathtub and into the tub.  She had multiple surgeries, plates and screws put into her wrist. This case goes to show that even difficult cases can be won if the facts are right.
