Representative Cases

  • - Successful 1 week damages only trial in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey wherein a 8 person jury unanimously rendered a $25,000 award to a plaintiff who alleged injuries, including, but not limited to, fusion surgery, from an accident for which defendants admitted liability.
