Verdicts & Settlements*

Below are some representative verdicts and settlements obtained by David L. Engelsher while at the Law Office of William A. Gallina, PLLC on behalf of clients in the Bronx and throughout New York City:

  • A Bronx man was struck by a truck as he attempted to cross the roadway, resulting in a leg amputation to one limb and foot amputation to the other.  Because the traffic and pedestrian lights were not synchronized, the truck entered the intersection and struck him as he attempted to cross, with both the truck operator and pedestrian claiming the light in his favor.  Plaintiff secured a settlement of $875,000 – the maximum $60,000 available from the truck’s policy with the remaining portion being paid by the company charged with maintaining the traffic lights.
