Leitner Varughese Settlement Featured in the August 2016 Edition of Zarin’s Jury Verdict Review &amp

Leitner Varughese’s recent personal injury settlement featured in national jury verdict reporter publication.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Leitner Varughese, a New York City and Long Island law firm which has dedicated its practice to protecting the rights of injured victims of negligence, is pleased to report that one the firm’s recent settlements was selected to be featured in the August 2016 edition of Zarin’s Jury Verdict Review & Analysis. Immediately prior to trial, the firm secured a recovery of $375,000.00 for a client who injured his foot after stepping into a pothole on a New York City street. The defendant contended that the pothole was open and obvious, and that the failure of the plaintiff to make adequate observations caused the incident. The plaintiff sustained a foot fracture which required surgical intervention to repair. Earlier this year, the national jury verdict reporter featured several other recoveries secured by the Leitner Varughese firm, including: • $500,000.00 for the family of an 85-year-old nursing home resident in Staten Island whose tracheotomy tube dislodged and resulted in his death. • $350,000.00 on behalf of a 63-year-old woman in Nassau County who sustained a herniated disc requiring laminotomy. • $325,000.00 on behalf of the family of an 82-year-old Manhattan nursing home resident who fell in the nursing home and sustained a left tibia and fibula fracture. She did not have surgery and passed away six days later. According to senior trial attorney Brett Leitner of Leitner Varughese, “Leitner Varughese is dedicated to advocating for the rights of injured victims throughout New York State, and our firm will work tirelessly to secure the compensation that they deserve and are entitled to under the law.” The Leitner Varughese has recovered over $30 million on behalf of victims of nursing home abuse and neglect and serious accidents in just the last few years, in addition to recovering millions of dollars for clients that were injured by medical malpractice, in car and truck accidents, construction accidents (involving New York State Labor Law violations), slip/trip and falls, and otherwise injured due to the negligence of others.
