Huntington, NY (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
The New York Law Journal has published its list of Top New York Jury Verdicts for 2013 and cited Carol L. Schlitt for two of the top verdicts in New York. Carol L. Schlitt was one of the few attorneys to have more than one case listed among the top verdicts in New York.
The $4.9 million verdict obtained in the case Sweeney v. Oakes (Nassau 601010/11) ranked as the largest verdict in an assault case in New York State. In that case, Attorney Schlitt represented a nurse who had been viciously attacked by a psychiatric patient. “We worked for years on this case in an effort to bring justice to our client and to stand up for all nurses and medical professionals who face threats every day on their jobs.”
Ms. Schlitt obtained a $336,000 verdict in Newark v. Pimental (Bronx 252256/08), a pedestrian knockdown case that ranked as one of the best pedestrian verdicts in New York. Ms. Schlitt explained, “On the eve of trial, the insurance company offered $10,000 to settle the case; we assured our client that we would earn her more at trial. The verdict was sweet vindication for our client. The defense appealed and lost their appeal, too.”
Ms. Schlitt explained, “We commit to deliver remarkable service to our clients. Remarkable service requires great communication and a devotion to education, it involves moving every case as fast as possible and it means that we will do all we can to maximize the compensation for our clients. Being recognized for having two of the largest verdicts in the state is especially meaningful to us because it demonstrates our commitment to all our clients. I always tell my clients that past results do not guarantee future outcomes, yet having two of the top verdicts in New York State speaks to the victories that we can achieve for our clients.”
