Q. Hi if a judge issues a remitturr as a motion judgement does that mean that there was a offer discussed already on a case
A: First, I am going to try to make sense of what’s happened in your case. In order for the judge to have reduced the amount of a verdict (remittitur), there must have been a trial on damages in your case following the granting of summary judgment on liability and successful defense of the summary judgment decision on appeal. You make no mention of a trial, so I’m a little confused. Both your attorney and defense counsel have the right to appeal the trial judge’s remittitur decision, and settlement discussions might be ongoing, but not necessarily. You should ask your attorney if there are settlement discussions and he or she can let you know if there has been an offer. In the meantime, your attorney can enter judgement and try to collect as long as there is no stay in place.
Q. Personal injury case has been in special trial part for a year and a half , it’s just adjourned for so long!
A: STP is the last stop in the court process, and it is from there that cases are sent out for jury selection and trial. As I am sure you are aware, the Covid pandemic shut down the court system for months, and jury trials only very recently began again, and on a very limited basis. Unfortunately for you and every one of the many hundreds, if not thousands of other cases waiting to be sent out for trial, it will be months, if not another year or two for the backlog of trial ready cases like yours to be sent out for trial. Good luck to you.
Q. Hello my fiancé working on a furniture store slipped off the platform where the furniture is on display
A: I am very sorry to hear about you fiancé’s accident. Whether you should change attorneys depends on a number of factors. The fact that the accident occurred in 2017 is not terribly significant, since with Covid and the Courts shut down for a significant period of time, delays in cases are normal, particularly in Bronx County. There is not a personal injury attorney in New York that does not currently have cases dating back to 2017, and even earlier. More concerning is that you say he is “now suing the owner of the building”. Since the statute of limitations on the case is 3 years, it is likely that the case was started some time ago and has been slowly working its way through the litigation process. There is no reason to wait for the workers’ comp case to settle before suing the building owner. Both cases can proceed at the same time. Even with Covid delays, I would expect a case from 2017 to be finished with discovery by now and on the trial calendar. To know whether this is in fact the case, the measure is whether your fiancé has testified at a deposition in the personal injury case. Typically the deposition takes place about a year after the lawsuit is started, though the timing can vary significantly depending on the facts and type of case. If after four years she has not testified at a deposition, I’d be concerned about how the case is progressing. If she testified two or more years ago, it is likely that the case is stuck on the trial calendar along with hundreds of others. If you’d like me to look up the case to see where it is in the Court process, or you’d like to discuss the case further, please give me a call at 212-307-5800. Charles Green,Esq.
