Verdicts/Settlements:

  • Paralyzed Young Father Receives $40 Million Jury AwardA jury of 3 men and 3 women has awarded $40 million to a young man for injuries he sustained as a result of a 1999 rollover car accident in Cattaraugus County. At the time of the accident, our client was a passenger in a Ford Explorer being driven by his brother, and owned by Ford Motor Credit Company.Born and raised in the Western New York area, our client still holds the record for one meter springboard diving at his high school . At the time of the accident, he had recently graduated from University where he achieved distinction as an Academic All-American in springboard diving in Division I.The injuries have left our client paralyzed, wheelchair bound and having to rely on others for his daily care. The unanimous jury verdict was reached after a four week trial and jury deliberations that took place over two days.The trial was presided over by the Hon. Joseph R. Glownia.

  • Jury Awards $5,600,000.00 For Motor Vehicle Accident on Niagara Falls Boulevard.The 47 year old plaintiff, who was a former insurance agent, sustained serious injuries in an automobile accident that occurred on Niagara Falls Boulevard. The plaintiff was traveling northbound when a southbound Federal Express Truck suddenly turned left in front of him. The Beltz firm successfully argued that the defendant driver should be held liable for the happening of the accident as a matter of law, and the case then proceeded to trial for a determination of which injuries were caused by this accident and the amount of the plaintiff's damages. The plaintiff had sustained prior back problems for which he had undergone a number of surgeries. The plaintiff sustained a broken nose, deviated septum, nerve damage and multiple injuries to his cervical and lumbar spine, which required surgery. The jury awarded $5.6 million, reduced by 5% comparative fault. The plaintiff made a post-trial motion, and at that juncture the defendant's insurance carrier agreed to settle the case for more than the judgment amount.
  • Damages for Worker Injured by Defective Lattice Boom Crane Set at $7.2 MillionIn this products liability suit based on design defect, the defendant manufacturer disclosed only 11 similar occurrences. The Beltz firm, however, through independent research, discovered that the manufacturer of this lattice boom crane was aware of over 100 prior accidents in which workers were seriously injured or killed in the course of assembly or dismantling of lattice booms. Despite knowledge of this dangerous condition and that other manufacturers had adopted safety modifications, the manufacturer failed to heed the advice of its own internal engineer, who recommended a safer, feasible alternative design and the addition of instructions to the operator's manual. In addition, the manufacturer failed to provide any warnings or instructions relating to such assembly and disassembly process.Following a full trial in Federal District Court, the jury found liability against both the manufacturer, Bucyrus-Erie, and the plaintiff’s employer, Iroquois Rock. Iroquois Rock's liability was based upon the failure to provide training and instruction.
  • Family of Fatally Injured Forklift Mechanic Recovers $1.2 Million Following nine weeks of trial before the New York State Supreme Court, the spouse and 24 year old son of a forklift mechanic recovered 1.2 million dollars present value settlement as a result of his wrongful death when a forklift jack slipped out of position resulting in the mechanic's death.
