Sample Personal Injury Results:

    • $1.5 Million Verdict For Client Caught In LIRR DOOR
      On March 3rd, 2020, a New York Supreme Court Jury rendered a verdict in favor of our client who was injured and struck her head when caused to fall by Long Island Railroad door that closed on her. New York attorney Todd Greenberg clearly established through extensive cross-examination of the conductor and the ticket collector that the conductor was actually turned the other way when she should have been watching the door that the Plaintiff exited from. Our client, 71 years old at the time of the accident, was violently pitched to the ground, struck her head and suffered a concussion and subdural hematoma. Luckily, no operation was required, but Plaintiff did suffer cognitive defects for two years after the accident. Prior to trial the offer was $250,000.00 which was rejected. The Long Island Railroad offered $675,000.00 after summations which, upon advice of Mr. Greenberg, Plaintiff rejected. After deliberation for approximately five (5) hours, the Jury returned a $1.5 million verdict on behalf of our client. Mr. Greenberg obtained a verdict for 5 times the amount offered!

    • $3 Million Settlement for Our Client in Trip and Fall Case
      Our client had just left a matinée show on Broadway when, while walking towards the train, tripped on a grating owned and maintained by the New York City Transit Authority. Within two (2) days after the accident, Personal Injury Attorney Todd Greenberg, along with an expert engineer, examined the grating, took detailed pictures and concluded that the grading was an inch and a half above the sidewalk. Citing New York City Laws and Statutes, Plaintiff was granted Summary Judgment against the New York City Transit Authority and the case proceeded to damages. Our client suffered an acute fracture through the three columns of her spine at L3-4 and had to undergo a 13hr. three-part operation. After extensive negotiations with the Transit Authority, Mr. Greenberg was able to negotiate a settlement that ensures that our client will be compensated for her injures and future pain and suffering. Here is what our client said:

      January 2020

      Mr. Greenberg took my personal injury case in April 2015. It was a difficult time for me and my husband as well as a difficult physical recovery. Mr. Greenberg, Mr. Rothbard and the wonderful staff of the law office could not have been more supportive. They kept us informed throughout the process; Mr. Greenberg was diligent in working to obtain the best possible outcome for us and through it all so very supportive.

      Our case was settled with a very positive outcome. My husband and I cannot begin to express our gratitude to Mr. Greenberg and all of the staff who were so kind to us.

      We would highly recommend Mr. Greenberg and his law office to anyone needing assistance with a personal injury case.

      With much gratitude, Maureen and Jim

    • Trip and Fall Case Settled for Eighty Year Old Woman Against Bank which Foreclosed on Property at $175,000. On July 1, 2016, this accident took place on a sidewalk/driveway in front of a home in Queens County that had an elevated sidewalk slab. The eighty-year-old Plaintiff was walking with a friend when she tripped and fell and fractured her shoulder. No operation was necessary. The owner of the home had lost title to the house through a foreclosure and Personal Injury attorney Dominic Addabbo sued Wells Fargo Bank, the then title owner of the property. Although the Bank attempted to have the case dismissed based on the fact that they were not in possession, after thorough research, the Supreme Court, Queens County, denied the motion. Further, Personal Injury attorney Dominic Addabbo was able to establish that the defect was not “minimal” and was actionable. Result: $175,000.00 recovered for our client! If you were injured by a uneven side walk or any other defect, call the personal injury Attorneys’ at Addabbo and Greenberg at 718-268-0400 or visit us at www.addabboandgreenberg.com/.

    • Slip And Fall Case Settled For $500,000 Immediately Prior To Trial. On June 27th, 2013, Personal Injury Attorney Dominic Addabbo settled a slip and fall case for our client, a 60 year old woman, against a contractor who was doing work for the City of New York. The Plaintiff drove to work and parked in an area which was recently excavated and then temporarily repaved. However, the new pavement was approximately one inch lower causing Plaintiff to lose her step and fall fracturing her leg in two places. While in the hospital, Plaintiff developed a MRSA Infection which cause additional hospitalization and necessitated surgery which left a serious scar on her stomach. Although the Defendant argued that the misleveling was minimal and not actionable, the personal injury and accident attorneys at Addabbo and Greenberg argued that the totality of the circumstances constituted a trap which caused the Plaintiff to fall. Dominic Addabbo was prepared to go to Trial in this matter when, immediately prior to Jury selection, the case settled for $500,000.00. Once again, preparation, knowledge of the law, along with dedication to our clients, resulted in an extremely favorable recovery.

    • Trip And Fall Case Of Eighty Year Old Man Settled For $150,000.00 Prior To Jury Selection. Plaintiff, an 80 year old man, was walking down Skillman Avenue and 54th Street in Queens, New York when he tripped and fell on a raised sidewalk slab. New York slip and fall attorney Todd Greenberg argued that the Defendants were negligent and careless in their ownership and operation of the aforesaid sidewalk in it had been repaired but remained in an uneven condition. Although Defendants argued that the sidewalk defect was “minimal” and not actionable, the case settled prior to jury selection for $150,000.000 based on New York accident slip and fall attorney Todd Greenberg’s argument that the defect was actionable and based upon the facts that the plaintiff suffered a fracture of his left patella. Persistence on the part of the accident and injury attorneys of Addabbo & Greenberg helped the 80 year old Plaintiff gain a substantial recovery in a case where the Defendants argued there was no liability.
