The owner of a small, struggling restaurant in the Bronx came to us for help when he was sued by his employees for more than $200,000.00. The problem was, these claims were largely false and unsubstantiated. Rather than face us at trial, the plaintiffs settled for only $25,000.00- just over 10 percent of the monies they originally sued for.
We recently represented the owner of a trucking/delivery company. A driver claimed to suffer serious injuries while employed by our client. However, our trucking/delivery client had a contract with a larger company, which made us no more than a contractor of the larger company where all workers were concerned.
