$5,000,000 Verdict After $250,000 Defense Offer – Worker Struck by Pickup Truck

Congratulations to Bill Ricigliano of William Ricigliano, P.C. in New York, NY, for the $5 million verdict he obtained on behalf of his client in a conservative county. The plaintiff, a 32-year-old Verizon line technician, suffered multiple injuries when he was hit by a county owned pickup truck.

The plaintiff was finishing up on a job site, collecting orange cones around the work zone, when the pickup truck struck him. He suffered a torn meniscus, a right torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), an annular tear at L4-L5, and chronic pain. The injuries required an arthroscopic surgery of the knee and a discectomy and lumbar fusion at L4-L5.

The defense offered a base line pay of $250,000 when the plaintiff’s demand was $3.2 million. With the defense arguing that the plaintiff had pre-existing injuries, Mr. Ricigliano had to prove that the collision caused the back injuries. Aided by the spinal surgeon’s compelling testimony, Mr. Ricigliano obtained a $5 million dollar verdict from the conservative county jury.

Mr. Ricigliano partnered with MediVisuals to develop exhibits that illustrate the plaintiff’s initial injuries and chronic pain.
