New York Personal Injury Law Firm Cellino & Barnes Wins $3.25 Million Settlement For Workers Injured in Truck Accident
Date:11/17/2009

Cellino & Barnes, a New York personal injury law firm, recently obtained a total settlement of $3.25 million for two sanitation workers whose garbage truck was hit by a commercial vehicle that ran a red light. The Buffalo trial attorney was Cellino & Barnes lawyer Michael Cooper.

Buffalo, NY (Lexis Nexis) November 17, 2009 -- New York law firm Cellino & Barnes has won a $3.25 million personal injury settlement for its clients who were injured on the job in a truck accident. The Buffalo Department of Street Sanitation employees were performing their duties when a truck ran a red light and broadsided their vehicle. The sanitation workers were seriously injured in the resulting accident, and Cellino & Barnes lawyer Michael Cooper filed a personal injury lawsuit (002399/2006) in the 8th Judicial District of the New York Supreme Court in Erie County.

The plaintiffs suffered back, knee, neck and head injuries. "Both of our clients in this case underwent spinal fusion surgeries," personal injury attorney Cooper said. "The insurance company for the defendant did not want to settle, despite the severity of my clients' injuries." Cooper entered into an alternative dispute resolution process, seeking a settlement or a trial. "I negotiated vigorously in the ADR over an eighteen-month period," Cooper said, adding that he met with the judge and the defense lawyer over a dozen times on his clients' behalf. "When the defense finally understood that I was prepared to go to trial, they agreed to my settlement demands."

"Our firm's attorney Michael Cooper prepared the cases for trial and hired the best accident reconstruction experts in the country," law firm partner Stephen Barnes said. "As a result of our attorney's thorough preparation and persistence, the insurance companies ultimately agreed to his settlement demand of $1.75 million and $1.5 million, respectively." Firm partner Ross Cellino added, "Lawyer Michael Cooper's determination to proceed to trial was a key to the successful outcome of this serious personal injury case."
