Verdicts and Settlements:

  • Confidential Seven Figure Settlement for Car’s Airbag Failure that Caused Fatal InjuriesOur firm represented the estate of a woman who was tragically killed in a head on motor vehicle accident. While the accident was caused by the negligence of the other driver, the airbag in our client’s vehicle failed to deploy, despite the direct impact of the collision, causing fatal injuries. Mark LeWinter and Amber Racine successfully developed the theory that the airbag’s components were faulty. In advance of mediation, our team created and presented a settlement video that truly depicted the tragic losses our clients suffered as a result of losing their wife/mother. As a result of the dedicated persistence of our team, mediation resulted in a significant settlement.  
  • Confidential Settlement Against Employer Whose Intentional Act Caused InjuryAlthough states’ workers compensation laws normally grant immunity to employers from lawsuits brought by their injured workers, in New Jersey it is still possible to sue an employer who acted with a substantial certainty that its staff would suffer an injury. After Mike’s right hand was crushed and degloved in a rubber mill, it was discovered that the employer had moved the safety guards – to increase production – that rendered the guards ineffective. Mark LeWinter and Amber Racine were able to successful overcome the Workers’ Compensation exclusive remedy provisions to accomplish a well-deserved settlement on the eve of trial.
  • Confidential Settlement for Client Injured When Wheelchair Tipped OverOur wheelchair bound client suffered a traumatic brain injury with subarachnoid hemorrhage as a result of falling from a wheelchair ramp which violated the requirements of the American Disabilities Act (ADA). The owners of the medical office complex ignored tenant complaints related to the ramps’ unsafe slope, insufficient width and dangerous drop offs. Mark LeWinter and Amber Racine took the case over from our client’s prior counsel and quickly developed a record which increased its value and encouraged the defendants to seek out mediation.
