Levene Gouldin & Thompson – Personal Injury Case Results
$2.7 Million Wrongful Death, Bus Accident Lawsuit in Binghamton, NY – This wrongful death claim arose when the decedent, who was on a highway construction crew on Route 81 in Binghamton, was killed by a speeding bus. Our law firm was able to prove that the highway where the accident occurred was negligently designed. The tragic circumstances of the case also resulted in a change in the law for enhanced penalties for speeding in a construction zone.
$2.65 Million Negligence of Child Protective Services – A young child was negligently placed into care with abusive caretakers. We discovered that Child Protective Services failed to conduct adequate background checks and follow federal and state laws regarding the placement of children into care.
$2.2 Million Work Accident, Products Liability in Bradford County, Pennsylvania – Our client worked in a meat packing plant. His clothing became caught in a conveyor belt, and drew his arm into it causing severe injuries to his hand, arm and shoulder. We were able to establish that had the conveyor belt been properly guarded, the accident would not have occurred.
$1.6 Million Bike Accident in Whitney Point, NY – While riding a bike, our client was hit by a state trooper’s vehicle. She sustained injuries to her head and face. After a trial, the case settled.
$1.5 Million Trip and Fall in Broome County – Our client broke her neck in a trip and fall accident in a parking lot. We were on the scene of the accident almost immediately which was an important part of her case, as the owner of the parking lot repaired the lot very shortly after her fall.
