Duane R. Morgan has been practicing exclusively in the area of personal injury since 2004. He specializes in trial practice of construction accidents, automobile accidents, premises accidents and product defect cases.
Mr. Morgan has obtained numerous verdicts and multimillion dollar settlements for his clients, including $3.25 Million for a scaffold worker that was hit on his hardhat by a falling object. The client went to the doctor only three times in the first 7 months after the accident and continued working for 10 months after his accident. The case settled after jury selection in New York County.
