Frekhtman & Associates (“F&A”) Injury Trial Lawyers are proud to announce a verdict of $537,000.00 in a motor vehicle accident following a jury trial in Manhattan Supreme Court. The plaintiff Zamen Thomas Au alleged his vehicle was T boned by defendant late at night near the Holland Tunnel in Manhattan. Although Thomas had some prior chiropractic treatment to his back, we argued that any pre-existing injuries were aggravated by this accident. As a result of this accident, Thomas had physical therapy as well as a percutaneous discectomy whereby a surgeon removed a herniated portion of a disc using a Stryker decompressor. Although it is a minimally invasive in-office procedure, it is a discectomy surgery for which an operative report is prepared. At trial, defendants were contesting both liability and damages. Defendants offered no more than $40,000.00 to settle this claim. Arkady Frekhtman, a partner at the F&A firm, said “We took a risk by refusing to negotiate with defense counsel who clearly wanted to resolve the case for a number well below six figures. We paid medical experts and prepared extensively for trial and are very happy with the result.”
Other recent firm news include the expansion into practice areas in addition to personal injury law including mass torts. The firm has been involved in a number of defective drug cases nationwide including Xarelto blood thinners and Taxotere hair loss litigation matters. F&A is also involved in several Talcum Powder litigation matters, IV filter cases, Mirena IUD, and other mass tort cases. On the class action front, the firm is involved with a false advertising class action litigation against the manufacturers of Prevagen memory supplements.
The F&A law firm has offices in midtown and downtown Manhattan as well as Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. The firm expects to open a Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn location later this year.
