  • $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

    A General Contractor responsible for managing and overseeing the construction of a major federal governmental building in Manhattan agreed to pay for our client’s pain, suffering and loss of wages incurred while we were awaiting a trial in Supreme Court where our client who was in his 50’s fell while descending from an improperly secured ladder without proper safety equipment as required under Section 240 of the Labor Law.

  • $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.

  • $1,028,000.00 – VERDICT: Motor Vehicle Accident

    Motorist found liable for negligently backing up out of a parking space which resulted in our 66-year-old client being struck while lawfully proceeding in a crosswalk. Her injuries included a fracture to the knee which required surgery but due to an unrelated medical condition, she was prevented from proceeding with the surgery, resulting in protracted pain and suffering.

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

    After a trial resulting in a verdict, it was previously agreed that the insurance company representing a landlord would pay the $1,000,000.00 figure pursuant to a high/low settlement agreement ($1,000,000.00 high) as a result of the landlord’s negligence in failing to provide proper front door locks at the entrance to a residential building which resulted in our client being viciously attacked in the stairwell as she was attempting to go to her apartment. Her injuries included multiple stab wounds with significant and disfiguring scars. (Sylvester v. Mayer – Kings County)

  • $927,000.00 – VERDICT: Sidewalk Accident

    Mr. Perlman was retained as trial counsel to try a case involving a client who was caused to fall on a public sidewalk located in front of a bodega in Brooklyn where the sidewalk was badly broken. Notwithstanding Plaintiff’s full knowledge of the broken sidewalk because she visited the area on a daily basis, we were able to successfully argue that the adjacent Defendant building owner’s failure to repair the location over a substantial period of time was the cause of the accident as opposed to our client’s reasonable effort to avoid falling as she was required to walk over this defective sidewalk. The Plaintiff suffered a fracture to her ankle resulting in protracted pain and suffering. (Pitchford v. Freed – Kings County)

  • $1,225,000.00 – SETTLEMENT: Motor Vehicle Accident

    In a case referred to our office by another law firm, we were able to achieve a settlement close to trial after aggressively litigating the case against the City of New York where we were prepared to prove that a New York City police van was being driven recklessly down a Brooklyn street which resulted in a heavy impact with the SUV occupied by our two young clients who were seated in the rear passenger seat. Although the medical treatment rendered following the accident did not show any significant trauma to the head or brain notwithstanding that these young children were ejected from the vehicle onto a sidewalk, we were prepared to prove through our retained medical experts, expert engineer and other witnesses that the young boys did suffer from traumatic brain injury and did manifest symptoms and other traits associated with traumatic brain injuries.
