The Law Office of Louis Grandelli recently litigated a case where a plaintiff was injured due to an unsafe worksite, and we were able to prove that the plaintiff had a viable third-party claim against his employer. The injured worker was performing his normal duties at his worksite, when he fell head first into a hole that had been improperly excavated in his work area by a construction company, causing him to sustain a brain injury.
The Law Offices of Louis Grandelli recently obtained a damages verdict of $16,000,000 dollars for a 35 year old Brooklyn resident who was injured in a motor vehicle accident and subsequently injured when he was assaulted by a security guard at the hospital where he was receiving treatment for his injuries.
After a three-week trial, a jury in the Bronx recently awarded a brain-damaged woman $172 million on May 28, 2014. The plaintiff, Tiffany Applewhite, suffered severe and life-altering brain injuries in 1998, when she was just a twelve-year old girl, which left her permanently unable to speak, paralyzed, and as her lawyer said, "trapped in her own body." To this day, Tiffany requires the use of a feeding tube, a wheelchair and wears diapers. Prior to the incident, Tiffany was a straight-A student and was applying to the prestigious Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan.
