New York, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
The New York Law Journal published the "Top New York Settlements of 2013" in its December 23, 2013 edition. The special section, which draws its data from Verdict Search, an ALM Publication, may be viewed here.
New York City personal injury law firm Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP posted more top results than other any law firm in New York State. Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP returned 15 top settlements, and no other firm returned more than 10. The section also listed the "Top 25" results of the year, and no firm had more top 25 results than Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP. The firm additionally posted the biggest result in the State in each of the following individual categories: workplace accidents, right turn motor vehicle accidents, left turn motor vehicle accidents, railroad crossing accidents, crosswalk motor vehicle accidents and broadside motor vehicle accidents.
It should also be noted that the section omitted a $22.5 Million settlement procured in March 2013 by Partner Daniel P. O'Toole of the firm, which would have been the number 1 overall settlement of 2013 in the entire State. That case, Zouaoui v. The State of New York (Court of Claims, Claim Number: 115405) involved the largest personal injury settlement paid by any municipal entity in the history of New York State.
Partner David L. Scher commented on the firm's recognition, "We are very proud of our firm's top 2013 settlements because each one represents an injured client who we helped through a difficult time and for whom we provided lasting financial security."
