In April of 2023, in a case where Justin Blitz was retained to be the trial attorney, a settlement was reached for $4.3 million on the eve of trial. An iron worker fell from a ladder and sustained permanent injuries that prevented him from working again. Our client sustained an injury to his neck during the fall and had to undergo fusion surgery because of the injury.
The trial and negotiations that led to the settlement took place in the Supreme Court of Westchester County. After multiple attempts at mediation failed, the case was prepared by Mr. Blitz to begin trial. After extensive negotiations at the last minute, Mr. Blitz was able to settle the matter for $4.3 million.
