The Dervishi Law Group obtained a $3,295,582 verdict against the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) on behalf of a 74-year-old Albanian janitor who slipped and fell down an outdoor subway stairway during a rainstorm at the Rockefeller Center subway station in Manhattan. Plaintiff, a Local 32BJ cleaner, was on his way to work at 1185 Sixth Avenue, when he slipped and fell on a step with a loose metal plate and a downward slope. The accident was not reported to the NYCTA. Nonetheless, based on his prior testimony, the NYCTA maintained that the Plaintiff, who testified through an Albanian interpreter, was not holding the handrail, stepped on something “soft” and was rushing to get to work. Although the radiology reports of his first three medical providers indicated that his cervical vertebrae fracture was “old” and “chronic,” his surgeon clarified that the clinical diagnosis and intra-operative findings demonstrated an acute injury. The jury awarded him $350,000 in past medical expenses, $240,000 in past lost earnings, $1,200,000 in past pain and suffering, $255,582 in future medical expenses, $250,000 in future lost earnings and $1,000,000 in future pain and suffering, with no comparative fault.

The Dervishi Law Group was able to negotiate a 1.65 million dollar settlement for a union bus driver

This month, the Dervishi Law Group negotiated a $1,650,000.00 settlement on behalf of a 53-year-old, union bus driver who sustained an exacerbation of prior neck injuries when her bus was hit by a van making an illegal turn across five lanes of traffic. Our client received emergency room treatment two days after her accident, beginning a course of orthopedic care and pain management. With the help of her doctors, she was able to return to work eight months later, continuing to work another two years despite the ongoing pain, until she experienced a further exacerbation of her neck injury, necessitating surgery and permanently disabling her from employment. The settlement will provide this single mother with compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the defendant, as well as financial security as she faces ongoing medical expenses without employment.

If you have been injured in an accident make sure you have a winning lawyer on your side.
