  • $1,300,000.00- SETTLEMENT: MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE

    Plaintiff’s husband who was 62 years old and retired was struck by a motor vehicle which resulted in a significant ankle fracture necessitating surgery including the placement of hardware in his ankle. Based upon the Decedent’s age, his injury/surgery and prior medical history, we were successful in proving that the required medical standard of care to be provided to the Decedent included an anticoagulant regimen to prevent blood clots following his surgery. Although he was started on the regimen shortly after his surgery, the hospital and his orthopedic surgeon never continued the regimen after he was discharged from the hospital when he was expected to convalesce at home. This was despite a physician’s order in the hospital record which called for  the medication enaxoparin to be injected twice a day for at least 10 days to prevent any blood clots. This physician’s order required a continuum of care at home with a visiting nurse who could give him the injections or teach him to do it himself while he was recovering at home. Instead, he was never informed about this physician’s order and the need for this important prophylactic treatment. Unfortunately, due to his inactivity resulting from his injuries and the lack of any medicine to prevent the blood clots, he developed blood clots in his lower limb at the site of his injuries which travelled to his lung causing a pulmonary embolism and death. Shortly prior to trial, we negotiated a fair and reasonable settlement in order to compensate his wife and children due to their compensable losses.  ( 2019 Confidentiality Agreement prevents further information )

  • $2,500,000.00- SETTLEMENT: MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT

    Our client’s husband was operating a motorcycle when he approached the entrance of a shopping center where a car suddenly made a left turn in front of him leaving him no time to avoid contact with the car. Unfortunately, the impact was so severe he was unable to survive despite all emergency medical and hospital care provided to save him. The car was significantly underinsured without enough insurance to cover the tremendous economic loss suffered by the decedent’s family who was left surviving without any benefits. Our thorough investigation early on revealed that a traffic study performed by the traffic engineer hired by the shopping center owner requested permission from the municipality to put in a left turn signal in order to control traffic at the entrance from the main road years earlier. The municipality denied permission indicating that it was not necessary. Traffic increased over the years and the turning lane was lengthened but there was no modification to the traffic signal itself. Mr. Perlman and Mr. Rosen vigorously and relentlessly fought for years on behalf of the family in order to show and prove that the municipality was negligent in its ownership, maintenance and management of this very busy intersection which was a significant factor giving rise to the accident.

  • $3,000,000.00 – SETTLEMENT: Train Accident

    After years of vigorous litigation, on the eve of trial the New York City Transit Authority finally agreed to accept responsibility for running over our client with a subway train at an uptown Manhattan subway station after our client had previously fallen onto the tracks. Although the motorman operating the train attempted to claim that our client jumped in front of the train, we were prepared to show that the motorman who was operating the train falsified his report and should have seen him on the tracks as he was approaching the station. This was still a very difficult case notwithstanding that our client’s injuries required amputation of his lower legs because a jury may very well have attributed significant fault to our client for falling onto the tracks.

  • $2,000,000.00 – VERDICT: Premises Negligence

    A jury held the sponsor of a company picnic liable for causing the loss of eyesight in our client’s eye after he had been struck with a bottle rocket that was ignited during a July 4th picnic. We were able to prove that the sponsor failed to properly manage and supervise the picnic at which time fireworks were permitted to be ignited without any proper supervision. (Gonzalez v. John B. Lovett & Assoc. – Bronx County)

  • $1,800,000.00 – SETTLEMENT: Labor Law Construction Accident

  • $1,200,000.00 – SETTLEMENT: Medical Malpractice

    In a protracted and hard fought case pending in the Albany New York area, we were successful in persuading the insurance companies for a hospital and various private doctors to settle the case involving our 6 year old client who was suffering from rare eye cancer that was not timely diagnosed which allowed it to metastasize causing death. We claimed the child’s pediatrician should have acted sooner in order to refer the child to a specialist. Additionally, we were also able to show that the specialists eventually seen by the child in succession incorrectly and inappropriately relied on each other instead of formulating opinions based on heralding signs and symptoms including the child’s deteriorating condition which required immediate diagnostic testing.

  • $2,000,000.00 – VERDICT: Landlord Negligence/Unsafe Building

Her injuries included multiple stab wounds with significant and disfiguring scars. (Sylvester v. Mayer – Kings County)
