Ms. Card, a 42-year-old executive assistant, was seated in a vehicle parked in front of a construction site, when it was rear-ended by a forklift driven by an employee of the defendant. While the forklift was only going approximately 8 mph, the force of the impact was substantial due to the extraordinary weight of the forklift. Ms. Card sustained injuries to her neck and back and ultimately underwent cervical spine surgery, after a year of conservative treatment. She continued to suffer from severe pain and began to suffer symptoms of depression. She subsequently resigned from her job because of her ongoing physical and emotional symptoms. Following a two-week trial, Mr. Goldstein obtained a verdict of $1.3 million dollars. #Attorney #AutoAccidentAttorney

When further investigation revealed that the defendant may have been ‘chasing’ Ms. Hewitt’s vehicle, the insurer offered $25,000 in settlement. Ms. Hewitt’s original attorney recommended that the settlement offer be accepted. Ms. Hewitt (then a minor) and her mother (her legal guardian) then consulted with Mr. Goldstein, who urged rejection of the settlement offer. Following a two-week trial, Mr. Goldstein obtained a jury verdict of $450,000. #AutoAccidentAttorney #LegalServices

While working as a service station attendant, Roy Covert, age 55, was provided with two new tires by a U.S. Postal Service employee, and directed to mount the tires on the USPS truck. Unfortunately, neither of these two individuals realized that the tires and wheels were actually ‘mis-matched’ - the tires were 16 inches in diameter, and the wheels were 16.5 inches in diameter. As Mr. Covert inflated the mismatched tire and rim assembly, the tire suffered a violent explosion. The force of the explosion propelled the steel rim against Mr. Covert’s forehead, causing massive brain injury. The severity of his injuries requires that he receive 24-hour medical care and supervision for the rest of his life, at a cost of several million dollars. In the second week of trial, the case was settled for a confidential amount, thereby providing sufficient funds for Mr. Covert’s lifetime medical care costs. #PersonalInjuryAttorney

At the recommendation of her physician, Jane Doe took the prescription medication, Fen-Phen, for several months as an adjunct to her weight loss program. Several years after her use of the medication, she began experiencing shortness of breath and fatigue. She was ultimately diagnosed with a condition known as Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (“PPH”). The average life span from the date of diagnosis of PPH to death is less than 10 years. While the significant risk of PPH was well known to the pharmaceutical manufacturer, American Home Products (AHP), they had deliberately chosen to omit the actual frequency of Fen-Phen related PPH from its package insert. AHP argued that Ms. Doe’s medical condition was unrelated to her Fen-Phen use years earlier. The case was ultimately settled for a confidential amount. #MedicalMalpracticeAttorney

Dennis White suffered a severe fracture of his jaw and the fracture/loss of seven teeth when an industrial grindstone literally exploded in his face. Pre-trial investigation revealed that the electrical outlet in the ‘man lift’ in which Mr. White had been working had been mis-wired. With the benefit of this information, a #productliabilityattorney was able to obtain a confidential settlement. #PersonalInjuryAttorney

Chris Lee, a 44-year-old, self-employed electrician, was injured when he received a severe electric shock as he touched a ‘meter pedestal’ that had been inadvertently electrified by the defendant’s employees. The electric shock caused severe contractions of the muscles in his neck and upper back, resulting in an acute disc herniation in his cervical spine. He underwent a multi-level fusion of his cervical vertebrae and has residual pain from direct electrical injury to nerve fibers in his right shoulder and arm. Read on to find out the result! #IndustrialAccidentsLawyer

Roger Taylor was stopped at a traffic signal, seated in his vehicle, when its left rear corner was struck by the defendant’s large truck at a speed of approximately 5 mph. Within a few weeks of the incident, he underwent surgery on his cervical spine. The defendant argued that the disc injury was pre-existing, and that it could not have occurred in such a low-impact collision. At trial, the #personalinjuryattorney argued that because of the extraordinary mass of the defendant’s truck, there were sufficient forces involved to have caused the disc to herniate. #MotorVehicleNegligence
