Significant Representative Matters

  • Secured stipulation of dismissal with prejudice in federal court for personal injuries alleged by plaintiff in an automobile accident. The  plaintiff was alleging to have sustained significant, permanent injuries as a result of a minor impact accident that occurred in a bank parking lot.  Filed a motion to dismiss after the plaintiff failed to cooperate and appear for multiple defense medical exams.  The magistrate agreed and dismissed the plaintiff's complaint with prejudice.

  • Successfully tried to verdict an automobile accident claim where plaintiff was seeking $125,000 originally when Complaint was filed.  Non-binding arbitration awarded plaintiff $45,000.  Minimal offer was extended and rejected by plaintiff.  Jury found for the defense confirming plaintiff did not pierce the verbal threshold pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:6A-8 et seq.

  • Secured dismissal of two plaintiffs claims for personal injuries as a result of a slip and fall in a parking lot of the insured's business.  Plaintiffs were seeking $100,000 each for their alleged injuries.  Kevin filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing the "Snow in Progress Doctrine" and the Superior Court agreed that the insured did not have an obligation or duty to perform snow removal services during a significant snow storm. 

  • Secured dismissal of plaintiff's claim for personal injuries in a slip and fall in front of the insured's business.  Plaintiff suffered significant injuries including a dislocated and fractured wrist and head contusion.  Plaintiff was seeking $250,000 in damages.  Kevin filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing plaintiff could not establish any negligence on the insured through the proofs submitted into evidence.  Plaintiff was rendered intoxicated in the hospital records, knew of the existence of the alleged "hazard" beforehand and was the only eye witness to the fall.  The Superior Court agreed that the evidence did not support plaintiff's allegations and there were no issues of fact that a jury could conclude the insured was responsible for plaintiff's injuries. 

  • Secured voluntary dismissal from plaintiff for a PIP suit filed by plaintiff with her bodily injury claims.  Kevin was able to establish plaintiff had no standing to bring the suit against the carrier as the medical providers had taken an Assignment of Benefits from the plaintiff and pursued their claims for reimbursement in the Forthright Forum. 

  • Successfully resolved a claim for personal injuries in a trip and fall suffered at the insured's roller skating rink.  The plaintiff tripped over a coin left on the skating rink floor used in the arcade machines at the insured's business.  Plaintiff suffered a bimalleolar fracture to his ankle requiring surgery including plate and screws.  Plaintiff made a demand for $250,000 and the case resolved for $31,500 which included a health care lien and wage claim.  We were able to establish that the insured had no actual or constructive notice of the coin being on the floor and had adequate security and personnel on the floor at the time of plaintiff's floor.
