$450,000 for Elevator Accident

Posted by Robert A. Flaster

A man from Brooklyn in his 20’s was traveling in the elevator in the apartment building where he lived when the elevator abruptly stopped between floors causing him to lose his balance and fall to the floor of the elevator. He tore the ligaments in his wrist which was surgically repaired. The superintendent of the building testified that the client had told him he got into a fight with his friend in the elevator and that was why he fell and hurt his wrist. Mr. Flaster located the super’s son who resided in Newark, New Jersey and taped his conversation which refuted the superintendent’s story. Attorney Flaster played the tape at the case conference for the judge  at which time the case settled.
