Desicions

Sometimes cases don’t end at the trial court level.

Our system of justice works well. Most judges are hard working, smart and wise. Most juries are savvy and arrive at just decisions. However, there are times trial courts make mistakes and arrive at wrong decisions. There are times when Juries make mistakes. And there are times when a losing adversary refuses to accept our client’s victory. In those instances, the cases are appealed, and the Appellate Courts intervene to maintain justice.

We have fought for our clients on the appellate level on many occasions. We have appealed when judges or juries have come to unjust determinations, and won. We have also fought Defendants to preserve our clients’ hard fought victories on the appellate level, and have succeeded on numerous occasions. In having litigated all of our appeals, without referring them out to outside appellate counsel, we have assembled a long and impressive record of appellate successes, some of which are set forth below:

APPELLATE COURT NEARLY TRIPLES VERDICT AWARDED FOR SOFT TISSUE INJURY

After we obtained an award of $168,000 for Plaintiff’s soft tissue injuries (one of the top motor vehicle verdicts in New York in 2011), we appealed, requesting an increase in the amount awarded for future pain and suffering.  The Appellate Court agreed with us and added an additional $300,000 to the verdict.  The value of the total recovery, as valued by the Appellate Court, inclusive of interest from the time liability was determined, exceeded $550,000.

This victory was all the more significant in that Defendants’ insurer, GEICO originally valued the case at $7,500, eventually offering $50,000 at trial.  The client ended up with well over 10 times that amount. Click here to view this Appellate decision

APPELLATE COURT AGREES WITH US THAT INSURER IS NOT ENTITLED TO DISCOVERY

When a trial court ordered us to provide discovery to the insurance company in a “SUM” case, we appealed and won. The appellate court agreed with our position that the insurance company was not entitled to discovery and that the case can proceed to arbitration. Click here to view this appellate decision

APPELLATE COURT SUSTAINS VERDICT FOR NON-SURGICAL DISC INJURY AT OVER $1 MILLION

Defendants appealed a $1.3 Million Jury verdict we obtained for a soft tissue injury. The Appellate Court sustained the award at $1.045 Million, one of the highest ever in New York State for a non-surgical herniated disc. State Farm Insurance Company has now been forced to pay over $1.38 Million, inclusive of interest and costs. Click here for the Appellate decision:
