The case resolved by settlement after the opening arguments and the video of the expert orthopedic surgeon during the damages phase of the trial.<br /> <br /> The accident occurred in December of 2009 when the plaintiff, an elevator modernization mechanic who was on the job for several months, descended a staircase and the top step broke under the weight of his foot. He fell eight feet through the stairway and onto the roof of the building.<br /> <br /> As a result, he suffered knee and back injuries necessitating multiple surgeries to his back and knee. He was not able to return to work following the accident.<br /> <br /> The overall settlement amount of $5,825,000 is being paid by three different insurance companies. <br /> <br /> Litigation Chair and Member <a href=";A=5271&amp;format=xml&amp;p=5532">Charles X. Gormally</a> tried the case before the Supreme Court of New York with assistance from Member <a href=";A=5302&amp;format=xml&amp;p=5532">Stuart J. Polkowitz</a> and Counsel <a href=";A=5280&amp;format=xml&amp;p=5532">Anthony M. Juliano</a>. In all, the Brach Eichler team represented the client through two trials and two different juries before the successful verdict was reached on June 27, 2018.<br />,388,390,406&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10Soranno and Stollen in NJLJ on Surveillance in Family Law Jul 2018News,388,390,406&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10Cannabis Realities: Brach Eichler's Leadership Conference on Recreational Cannabis Policy and Practice Jul 2018Events<br /> &ldquo;Cannabis Realities,&rdquo; hosted by Brach Eichler, is designed to address issues confronting established and prospective industry participants, namely leaders in business, health care, and government.
