  • $2,400,000
    Motorcycle Accident Recently our firm was able to negotiate a very favorable settlement of 2.4 million dollars for one of our clients. After years of extensive discovery, mediations and attempts at settlement, the insurance company, on the eve of trial, finally offered our client a fair settlement. The client had suffered very significant injuries in a motorcycle accident. After the accident the client endured years of surgeries, medical treatments and therapies. Despite the excellent medical care, the client was left with many residual problems. After depositions, we had argued that, as a matter of law, the defendants were 100% responsible for the accident. The Judge agreed and granted our request to find the defendants fully responsible for the accident. This was a significant victory because it meant that the main issue at trial would be limited to the amount of damages the client was entitled to. With the use of various experts hired by our firm, including an economist and life care planner, we were able to paint a picture that fully described the impact that this accident had on the life of our client. Our client was very physically active and adventurous before the accident. We were able to demonstrate this to the insurance company by photographs and videos previously take of the client. This settlement will allow the client to obtain all necessary medical treatment in the future.

    Teenage Girl Killed In Bus Accident In New York We were able to recover this amount for the Queens family of a teenage year-old girl who was struck and killed by the a private bus as it turned a corner while passing through a stop sign without stopping. The bus company and its driver claimed that the City of New York was partly responsible for parking a Department of Transportation road paver in front of the child’s bus stop, thus blocking the bus driver’s view. Also, they claimed that the child was contributorily negligent for running into the street to chase the bus after it had passed her stop. We were able to successfully argue that the majority of the responsibility for the accident was the failure to stop at the corner stop sign. The bus company and the City both paid the settlement.

The adverse driver claimed that the host made a left turn and failed to yield the right of way.

  • Professional Driver Shoulder Injury
    Personal Injury

    Our law firm was recently retained by a professional driver who was injured in a serious car accident. The accident, not our client’s fault, caused the client to suffer an injury to his shoulder. He was recently advised by his doctor that he will need surgery on the shoulder. Following surgery, it is expected that he will need a significant amount of rehabilitation. Obviously, as a driver, he will be unable to work during this time period.

    It is possible that the client will face significant financial difficulties if he is unable to work for a long period of time. Under New York State no-fault rules, the client is eligible for up to 80% of his lost wages, or up to a maximum of $2000.00 per month. Clearly, this amount of money is not remotely close to the amount of money he was earning as a driver. One way that we can all protect ourselves in this situation is to purchase additional insurance now. For a nominal sum of money, you can increase the monthly lost wages benefit to $4000.00 per month. In this way, if you were put in the situation like our current client and you were unable to work, you could receive up to $4000 from no-fault. Without question, it is worth the investment.

    The solution for this client is to make a claim against the responsible insurance company for the difference in lost wages that the client may incur. At this time the case is too new to estimate the amount of lost wages, but if required, we are prepared to make this claim.

    At Foley Griffin we offer our clients the opportunity to review their auto policy at any time. If we see areas where an increase in insurance would benefit the client (such as increase in monthly wages), we will make suggestions to the client.

  • $325,000
    Work Van And Stolen Car Crash, Uninsured Motorist Case Our client was a phone company technician operating his work van when he was struck by a felon operating a stolen car who was fleeing the scene of an armed robbery. The insurance company for the stolen car properly refused to cover the accident. We therefore sought recovery from the employer’s and the client’s Uninsured Motorist carriers. The client had to retire from the job due to the injuries suffered. Although the client had suffered an injury to one of his shoulders prior to the accident, we claimed that it did not prevent him from working and was not significant compared to the severity of the accident.

    DUI Drunk Driving Accident In NYC Our clients, a mother and her two adult daughters, were struck head on by a drunk driver. The indigent drunk driver had stolen the vehicle from a local 7-11 earlier that day. We were able to show that the wife of the owner of the stolen vehicle had left her keys in the ignition with the car running at the 7-11. This was a violation of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law. As a result of the accident, the driver suffered a head injury, damage to her wrists and back pain.
