Personal Injury: $1.4 Million Dollar Settlement
During jury selection, a case filed by a New York City public high school teacher settled for $1,400,000 as a result of injuries suffered when a white board she was erasing in the classroom fell and knocked her to the floor. One year after the accident, the teacher required a cervical discectomy and fusion. Though our client returned to class as a teacher, her physician explained that she would necessarily have to retire approximately 8 years earlier than she planned due to the accident. Thus, we were prepared to present evidence of both future wages and pension benefit losses due to a premature retirement.
