Manhattan Personal Injury Attorney Blames Insurance Industry For Negative Perception Of Civil Justice System

David Perecman, founder of the personal injury attorney firm in Manhattan, is standing up against insurance companies and big business

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2009 -- New York personal injury lawyers can have a tough time against large pocketed companies such as insurance companies and big business. When it comes to frivolous lawsuits, these monsters want the public to believe it is they who are often the victims and not the average "Joe" who they claim is the unknowing sucker. Manhattan personal injury attorney, David Perecman is standing up against these accusations and wants to help the public.

Personal injury attorneys such as David Perecman, who have practiced law in Manhattan for more than 30 years, say in every case he tries one, or more, jurors will make a reference to frivolous lawsuits, often citing the well-known McDonald's case when a woman sued the company because her coffee was too hot. It was later proven the coffee was a scalding 190 degrees, which could cause third degree burns seconds. It turned out McDonald's purposely kept the coffee scalding hot despite the fact that the company had already received more than 700 complaints and claims of serious burns from customers in the 10 years prior to this trial. In many of these cases, McDonald's quietly settled for large sums of money, some for more than a half a million dollars.

"Most states have set basic rules and regulations that apply a clear set of standards to injury victims and their lawyers before a negligence claim can be tried in their jurisdictions, said founder of the Perecman firm, a law firm based in Manhattan with personal injury attorneys. "A victim of injury has to prove, by a preponderance of evidence, that some other party is at fault, and that they have suffered an actual physical injury, or disease, or pain or impairment of some kind that is arguably the result of negligence, or violation of the law, before a case is considered fit for trial."

According to the New York personal injury lawyer, David Perecman, "Insurance companies have financed big-budget public relations programs, often using their lawyers as spokespeople, in an attempt to undermine the credibility of trial lawyers and their clients." Although he isn't disagreeing that there is potential for abuse of the civil justice system, he states, "There are abuses in every system. But this was not one of them and we need to prove not all cases like this are abusing the system."
