Published annually, the NYLJ's New York Top Verdicts & Settlements list features the highest monetary value of jury awards obtained by lawyers and law firms from across the state.
For 2018, the following firm case results were among NYLJ's Top Verdicts & Settlements in the state of New York:
- $4.2 Million Settlement — In June 2018, in the matter of Cardona v. City of New York, the firm secured a $4.2 million settlement on behalf of its client, the #7 largest settlement on the 2018 NYLJ's Top Settlements list. The case involved a 23-year-old construction worker who suffered multiple injuries after falling off a scaffold.
- $1.75 Million Settlement — In April 2018, in the matter of Godwin v. SHS Upper City NY II LLC, the firm secured a $1.75 million mediated settlement on behalf of its client, the #14 largest settlement on the 2018 NYLJ's Top Settlements list. The case involved a 24-year old construction laborer who suffered injuries after being struck by falling fragments of cement and plasterboard while working on a Manhattan demolition site.
- $1.225 Million Settlement — In April 2018, in the matter of Villalobos v. City of New York, the firm secured a $1.225 million mediated settlement on behalf of its client, the #18 largest settlement on the 2018 NYLJ's Top Settlements list. The settlement was recovered on behalf of a 70-year-old construction worker who was injured when he fell off a ladder while working on a construction site in Flushing. The suit claimed that fall resulted from an elevated-related hazard, as defined by New York Labor Law 240(1), and that the worker was not supplied proper safety equipment as was legally required under the statute.
- $1.2 Million Settlement — In May 2018, in the matter of Gonzalez v. Paramount Group Inc., the firm secured a $1.2 million settlement on behalf of its client, tied for the #46 largest settlement on the NYLJ's Top Settlements list for 2018. The matter involved a 44-year-old union labor worker who was struck by a falling cinder block while performing work on a renovation site wall from a scaffold. In the suit, it was alleged that the renovation site's tenant and premises' managing agent had negligently failed to provide a safe workplace by not bracing or securing the wall, in violation of New York State Labor Law.
