Holtsville, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Long Island plaintiff’s personal injury law firm, Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP proved the defendant 100% at fault in a motor vehicle accident case (Mahoney v. Satava in Supreme Court Suffolk County, index #26517/07), winning a six figure trial verdict.
Under New York law, individuals in a motor vehicle accident can recover compensation based on the degree of fault another party had in causing the accident.
Personal injury attorney Ted Rosenberg stated, “We are pleased with the outcome of the trial.” He added, “The lawsuit is an example of how we fight for our clients. Our attorneys go the extra mile to hold liable parties responsible for their actions and obtain fair compensation for victims of negligence.”
Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP, located in Suffolk County, filed suit on behalf of a client who suffered headaches and occasional dizziness as a result of a car accident. Allstate Insurance represented the defendant, claiming the plaintiff’s injuries were insignificant and did not qualify as serious enough to warrant any compensation under New York law. However, at trial, attorney Ted Rosenberg proved that the plaintiff suffered from an inner ear injury as a result of the collision.
Court documents show that Ted Rosenberg successfully presented evidence from the investigation of the circumstances surrounding the accident in which a surveillance video from the building adjoining the accident site was discovered, proving the defendant was 100% responsible for the collision. The jury awarded the plaintiff $150,000 in damages and the additional video evidence enabled Rosenberg & Gluck to obtain summary judgment, which increased the recovery by $41,000 in interest for a total award of $191,000.
Michael Gluck, a partner in the firm advises, “If you suffer serious injury in a car accident, it is important to consult experienced lawyers to obtain a legal opinion. There is never a fee to have our attorneys evaluate the prospects of pursuing a case on your behalf.”
