Wrongful death $45.6m
Eddie suffered from scoliosis and underwent spinal surgery when he was 14 years old. The surgeon pierced Eddie's spinal cord with multiple screws causing him to become paralyzed and lied that they were properly placed. Undeterred by his disability, Eddie graduated college and had a job repairing computers. He passed away at the age of 22 due to complications from his paralysis.
Paralysis $56m
This verdict is the largest medical malpractice case in Rockland County. The plaintiff was rendered quadriplegic during spinal surgery for neck pain. A piece of fractured bone became embedded in the protective covering of her spinal cord, causing a contusion and hematoma. The defendants ignored sensory monitoring during the surgery and also failed to evacuate the hematoma post-surgery.
Truck accident $22m
Shirley was walking across 9th Avenue in Manhattan when defendants’ truck ran her over. She suffered massive brain injuries and lost her eyesight. Defendants refused to accept responsibility, claiming the accident was Shirley’s fault. Evan Torgan proved that Shirley was in the crosswalk when she was struck. Shirley received the then-largest personal injury settlement in NY State history.
Motor vehicle accident $20m
Juan had just finished jump-starting a car on the expressway. Upon returning to his vehicle, the defendant slammed into its rear and pinned Juan between the two vehicles, resulting in amputation of both legs. Defendant claimed Juan's vehicle lights were off. We hired an accident reconstructionist to examine the wreckage and proved that Juan’s hazard lights were on and the defendant should have been able to avoid the accident.

Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

Hiring a New York City personal injury lawyer allows you to level the playing field when going up against an insurance company or another major adversary. This means that while an insurance company may try to take advantage of you or use bad-faith tactics to diminish your payout, an injury attorney will protect you and fight for maximum financial compensation on your behalf.

In addition, a lawyer can take care of complicated legal matters so that you can focus your energy on healing. Your lawyer will handle case paperwork, file your claim in New York City, thoroughly investigate your accident, collect evidence, gather eyewitness statements, and take many other steps toward achieving a positive resolution for you and your family.

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is an opportunity for you to seek financial reimbursement for the losses associated with an accident that someone else caused. If another person carelessly or recklessly caused your injury, that person may be financially responsible (liable). Filing a personal injury case allows you to claim losses associated with the accident to pursue financial compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance provider. You may be eligible for financial recovery after many different accidents in NYC.

Life can be unpredictable, especially when it comes to getting in a car accident. Choose a New York City car accident lawyer at our firm for knowledgeable legal guidance in your time of need. We are dedicated to you and your case.

Construction Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Our New York City medical malpractice lawyers will fight to get you the compensation you deserve to cover disability, loss of income, additional medical bills, and suffering after being wronged by a medical professional.

Financial Compensation Awarded in a Personal Injury Case

You may feel that no amount of money can ever make up for the serious injuries you suffered because of someone else’s wrongdoing. We agree. However, a successful settlement or jury verdict can allow your family to pay off debts related to the accident and move forward. A monetary award can eliminate the financial strain associated with an accident and create a better future for your family.

The financial compensation that may be available during a personal injury case in New York could pay for your:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Out-of-pocket costs
  • Legal expenses
  • Punitive damages

At Torgan Cooper + Aaron, we believe that if you didn’t cause the accident, you should not have to pay. We also believe that holding someone accountable with a personal injury lawsuit can push for changes on an institutional level, motivating others in the community to improve their safety measures. Filing an injury lawsuit is about more than money. We will strive to attain positive results for closure, justice and accountability.
