Scott W. Bermack won a unanimous defense verdict on behalf of a Midtown Manhattan luxury apartment building sued in NY State Supreme Court

    Scott W. Bermack won a unanimous defense verdict on behalf of a Midtown Manhattan luxury apartment building sued in NY State Supreme Court, NY County, for negligence by a pedestrian who allegedly fell on a defective sidewalk adjacent to the building. The 50 year old diabetic plaintiff allegedly sustained an ankle fracture that became infected, resulting in a below-the-knee amputation as well as kidney failure, requiring dialysis and a kidney transplant. Following a 6-day trial, it took the jury less than 30 minutes to reject plaintiff’s claims and  return a verdict in favor of WG’s client.
