New York Attorney Obtains $2.25 Million Verdict for Client Injured on Grounds of Bronx Eye Surgery Clinic
Date:1/29/2009

Burns & Harris law firm prevails on behalf of plaintiff after one-week trial

New York (Lexis Nexis) January 29, 2009 -- Seth Harris, partner in the New York City-based litigation firm of Burns & Harris, prevailed in a hotly contested dispute with a Bronx eye surgery clinic, securing a $2.25 million verdict for a New York woman who suffered a serious foot injury on the grounds of the facility.

The case, Mary Colon v. New York Eye Surgery Associates (Supreme Court of the State of New York, Bronx County, Index No. 8832/06), was resolved after a one-week jury trial that took place in front of Hon. Mark Friedlander. After hearing the evidence, the jurors returned a verdict for the plaintiff and awarded Ms. Colon $750,000 in past pain and suffering, plus an additional $1.5 million in future pain and suffering, for a total judgment of $2.25 million.

The lawsuit brought by Ms. Colon was a personal injury claim, based on the negligence of New York Eye Surgery Associates' management of the grounds occupied by their facility. Ms. Colon was walking on the sidewalk in front of the premises maintained by the clinic when she moved to the side to allow two other pedestrians to pass. Since the grassy area beside the sidewalk was not level, her foot rolled and she suffered a painful ankle fracture, along with serious complications that cause chronic pain.

"We're very pleased that the Bronx jury listened intently to the evidence we presented at trial and ultimately agreed that the owners and occupiers of the facility should be held responsible for the negligence that was shown in maintaining the premises," said Harris, a successful trial attorney with an impressive track record of securing major verdicts and settlements for his clients.
