Staten Island Verdicts and Settlements

Staten Island verdicts and settlements are found bellow. A verdict is a decision that happens when the jury rules on all the evidence. A settlement is when the attorneys and parties agree to a figure without letting the judge or jury decide. Sometimes you will see a high/low figure. This means the parties agree to a range that the victim will receive. For example, if the parties agree to a $75,000.00/$25,000.00 high low, the most the victim can receive is $75,000.00, even if the jury decides the injuries are worth more. Similarly, the least you can receive is $25,000.00, even if the jury finds the victim has no case. The verdict or settlement does not include fees and costs. Most Staten Island personal injury attorneys take a third to 42% of the recovery, but our Staten Island personal injury firm only takes a low 31.5% fee.
