After a week-long trial of indemnification and loss transfer claims, Attorney Kenneth S. Merber obtained a complete victory in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Mercer County, located in Trenton, NJ.
A Quick Settlement
The case arose when a construction worker fell from an unguarded balcony. As a result of his accident he suffered quadriplegia and filed a catastrophic injury suit against a real estate developer.
Attorney Merber represented the real estate developer and negotiated a settlement with the plaintiff during pre-trial mediation. Next, Mr. Merber sought to recover funds from his client’s insurer and all other liable parties and insurance companies.
Successful Insurance Claims
Together, the team at Gallo Vitucci Klar LLP recovered policy limits and legal fees from the insurance company hired by our client’s contractor. The contractor, however, pointed the legal team in the direction of the original plaintiff’s employer.
Employer Refuses to Contribute
The employer refused to contribute to the settlement and shirked responsibility for the plaintiff’s losses, so Attorney Merber and the firm took their client’s claim to a jury trial. After hearing testimony from 7 witnesses, who testified to the employer’s negligence, the employer’s insurer agreed to cooperate.
Ultimately, Mr. Merber recovered the insurance company’s entire, 7-figure policy limit and recovered 6 figures in attorney’s fees for the cost of resolving the case.
A Win on Behalf of the Client
Fortunately, the injured worker was fairly compensated, and with the help of Attorney Merber and Gallo Vitucci Klar LLP, the client was properly taken care of by all relevant insurers.
