Hach & Rose, LLP Secures $12.8 Million Verdict for Injured Worker in New York City

The trial team of Michael Rose and David Cheverie from Hach & Rose, LLP secured a $12.8 million dollar verdict on behalf of a security officer in New York City.  The officer was injured by a negligently installed door closing mechanism in the new wing of a hospital that was under construction. The individual suffered a severe neck injury as she was passing through the doorway.

The six-week trial put the spotlight on the contractors hired to install the door. While they claimed they were following the instructions of the architect, so they were not responsible for the injury, the team at Hach & Rose were able to prove that it was, in fact, their negligence that caused the injury to the worker. The jury deliberated for less than 30 minutes before delivering the verdict in favor of the client.

Must Know Info: Prior injury does not mean your recovery should be reduced

In a new article posted to our Must Know Info page, New York City personal injury attorney Michael Rose discusses how having a previous injury should not have any effect on a new injury’s value in a settlement or verdict.

Insurance companies and their defenders would argue that because a person had, for example, a previous back injury, a new injury to that person’s back is worth less in terms of their financial liability. This is untrue. Whether the injury existed before the accident or not is irrelevant since the cost of treating it after the accident is the issue at hand.

If you suffered a repeat injury, do not let the insurers sell you short. Contact a personal injury attorney from Hach & Rose, LLP, by calling (212) 779-0057 to get the representation need after being injured in an accident.
