New York Lawyers at The Perecman Firm Deliver New York’s 4th Largest Workplace Accident Verdict for 2010


The recently released Verdict Search’s Top NY Verdicts of 2010 reports that New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman secured the 4th largest New York workplace accident verdict of 2010 with his winning of a case against Cablevision Systems Corporation & Cablevision Systems New York City Corporation CSC Holdings Inc., tried in Queens Supreme Court.

“The $5 million judgment forces Cablevision and other companies to seriously examine their safety standards and equipment,” said Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York's personal injury law firms.

The Plaintiff, a 32-year old installer of cable-television systems, was injured after falling 12 feet from an extension ladder outside a residence in Brooklyn. Perecman argued that the workplace ladder fall stemmed from improper safeguarding and from the lack of safe equipment. Allegedly, the ladder in the workplace accident was being used as a standalone ladder despite its lack of footings.

The jury heard how the Plaintiff now has difficulty walking and requires a cane. They also heard how he can no longer work in his prior occupation, or any occupation that required prolonged standing, walking, climbing, or strenuous physical activity.

The Plaintiff sought recovery of his past and future medical expenses, his past and future lost earnings, and damages for his past and future pain and suffering.
