The attorneys at The Platta Law Firm have managed to recover $150 Million+ in compensation for our clients who have suffered accidents at work or of any kind. Some of the success stories are:
Our client was a construction worker renovating a home. He fell on temporary wooden stairs that had not been properly placed and installed. The structure was swiftly moved prior to the accident. He was walking down the stairs to get to the restrooms – he only took one step onto before they shifted and fell straight down. It took the jury about an hour to determine the verdict, which was unanimous on all categories of damages. It was the highest construction accident verdict in the State of New York this year.
A carpenter was working on a construction project, when he was struck by a massive 30-pound metal clamp to the head. He was provided with no safety devices, not even a hard hat. His job was to help with the construction and mounting of a new staircase in a residential building. Our client’s injuries and the circumstances of the case left very little doubt for the type of reward that he recovered and ultimately deserved.
This case involved a multi-vehicle accident that occurred when a truck lost two of its rear wheels. The wheels bounced towards plaintiff’s vehicle. When he slowed to avoid collision with the wheels, he was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer. As a result of the accident plaintiff sustained severe and permanent injuries, including disc protrusions in the neck that required a fusion surgery and tears in the shoulder that required arthroscopic surgery. The case proceeded to trial.
