He handles cases of personal injury and has almost three decades of experience protecting the rights of the injured in more than one thousand cases.

Anyone who has been injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of another will find an advocate in Mr. Akerib.

    Some of his more successful cases include a $750,000 settlement for a construction worker, a $450,000 settlement for a pedestrian that fell on a sidewalk and a $250,000 settlement for a client injured while working on a military base.

    • No Smoke Detector – Brooklyn Landlord Pays $1,020,000. A Brooklyn property owner of a 2 family home wanted to make some extra money so he decides to create an apartment in the basement.  Unfortunately the Brooklyn basement apartment does not meet the rental codes of New York.   The apartment had only one exit and two windows with bars on them.   When a fire broke out in the building, the basement resident was unaware because there were no working smoke detectors in the basement.   , 2019
    • Our 38-year-old client was badly hurt on a Brooklyn jobsite. His day started off like any other, at the time of his injury he was a field technician and union-member working on a large construction site. He was walking up a set of stairs when he tripped over silicone tubes left on the stairwell. He fell down more than 10 stairs and landed directly on his back. He sought medical treatment and was diagnosed with a bulging disc. His painful and life-altering injuries could have been avoided had the construction site been safe and clear of debris. Those responsible for ensuring the safety of the workers on site were held accountable thanks to our dedicated attorneys, David Akerib and Michael Feldman., 2019
