  • Commercial Food truck v. Car

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Date:
    Feb 14, 2008
    Outcome:
    Settled
    Description:
    In September 2006, our client was operating his motor vehicle with his wife approaching an intersection. A food truck made a left hand turn at the intersection and broadsided our clients vehicle. Our client sustained life threatening injuries, including having to have his spleen removed, fractured lumbar vertebrae, fractured shoulder and other orthopedic injuries. We filed a lawsuit within months of the crash and eventually got the insurance company to offer a large settlement. Our client was extremely satisfied with the outcome, said Attorney David T. Aronberg. When we put enough pressure on the large insurance company, we feel that we obtain the upper hand against them.
  • Commercial Truck v. Car

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Date:
    Jan 01, 2008
    Outcome:
    Settled
    Description:
    On Valentine's Day 2005, our client was driving his automobile on I-95 when he was rear ended by an 18-wheel Tractor Trailer at approximately 17 m.p.h.. He sustained a highly unusual spinal injury at the top of his spine called Atlanto Axial instability as the result of the collision. He underwent spinal fusion surgery and he may require a future surgery due to continuing pain. The insurance company argued that our client's injury was not caused by the collision but, rather, it was a pre-existing condition that he had for many years. The defense hired an orthopedic surgeon and a radiologist in an attempt to prove that the injury was not caused by the collision. Our law firm, in turn, presented persuasive testimony from our client's orthopedic surgeon, a radiologist and a biomechanical engineer. The biomechanical engineer described the amount of force exerted on our client's spine and that the force was significant enough to cause the spinal injury. He also prepared a simulation of our client's accident showing exactly what happened to our client's body upon impact. The combined testimony from our orthopedic doctor, radiologist and biomechanical engineer was crucial in proving to the insurance company that the accident, and not some pre-existing condition was the cause of our client's injury and surgery.
  • Truck vs. Bicycle

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Date:
    Apr 07, 2007
    Outcome:
    Settled
    Description:
    On February 19, 2007, our client was riding his bicycle when he was run over by a commercial truck. As a result of the crash, our client suffered an open fracture of his arm, rib fractures, coccyx fracture, and a rectal wall injury. The truck driver failed to yield to our client’s right of way when he illegally entered an intersection. The police investigation failed to determine who was at fault. Our internal investigation concluded that the truck driver failed to look both ways prior to illegally entering the intersection and running over our client. "Despite the local police’s failure to determine fault, the truck driver was clearly in the wrong when he failed to look both ways and entered the intersection running over our client," said attorney David T. Aronberg. “We were able to resolve this case within months of the accident for just under $700,000,” said Aronberg.
  • Motor vehicle v. Motor vehicle

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Date:
    Aug 30, 2007
    Outcome:
    Jury Verdict
    Description:
    Our client sustained a knee injury as the result of an automobile accident. Four months after the accident, he suffered a stroke requiring in-patient rehabilitation. We argued to the jury that the stroke was directly related to the collision that occurred four months earlier. This was an extremely difficult medical case due to the stroke that occurred four months after the accident. Our firm spent tens of thousands of dollars in litigation costs to help our client prove his case, said attorney David T. Aronberg. We welcome the opportunity to take the toughest cases to trial. In order to win big verdicts you have to be willing to spend big money.
  • Wrongful Death

    Practice Area:
    Wrongful Death
    Date:
    Jan 01, 2010
    Outcome:
    Pending
    Description:
    We are currently working on a catastrophic automobile case involving the death of an 8 year old girl. The 8 year old and her family were all involved in this tragic event on the New Jersey turnpike. The family was traveling on the turnpike when they encountered an accident - a disabled vehicle in the middle of the road that was trapped underneath a disabled truck who failed to have any flares or other warning devices to warn oncoming traffic. The driver of the family’s vehicle pulled over to the side of the road and he got out of the car to try to help the disabled vehicle driver stuck under the truck. While the family’s car was safely parked on the side of the road, a second truck traveling at a high rate of speed came upon the disabled vehicles in the middle of the road, tried to avoid them and crashed into the family’s car. Since the filing of the lawsuit, it has been determined in discovery that the the second truck’s brakes were not working properly on the date of the crash and that the truck should have been taken out of service prior to this horrific crash. Two people were fatally injured. We look forward to working diligently on this case in order to obtain the best possible results for this terrible tragedy.
  • Investment Loss Case

    Practice Area:
    Securities & Investment Fraud
    Outcome:
    Settled
    Description:
    We are happy to announce that our law firm settled a Stock Investment loss case arising out of inappropriate and unsuitable investments purchased by a local Boca Raton investment firm. We resolved the case for close to 100% of the net out of pocket losses suffered by the clients. This case was particularly satisfying for our firm because of the nature of the case in that our clients were elderly and we felt were taken advantage of by the stock broker and the investment firm. The settlement now puts the clients back into a position that they were in prior to giving the stock broker their money. Our law firm welcomes you to call to discuss your potential investment loss case. Please call 561-266-9191 for a FREE CONSULTATION or visit our Law Firm website at www.aronberglaw.com.
  • $6 million settlement for wrongful death

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Date:
    May 01, 2012
    Outcome:
    Settled for $6 million
    Description:
    When considering something as horrific as the death of an 8-year-old girl, there is little to be delighted about. That said, the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg and attorney Todd A. Newman of Philadelphia are proud to announce a $6 million settlement from the first of two defendants responsible for the unspeakable loss of life that took place nearly four years ago. As we approach the anniversary of this little girl’s death, her family might finally begin the process of healing with the understanding that there is justice in the world — it just won’t be given to you. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. In the summer of 2008, a little girl and her family were traveling along the New Jersey Turnpike. It was nighttime, so the little girl was asleep in the backseat with some of her family members. The driver of the car, the little girl’s uncle, was an off-duty NYPD officer at the time. So when the family came upon a motorist in distress, it’s no surprise that the officer pulled the family’s vehicle into the emergency lane and got out of the car to help. The officer, helped a woman escape her car that had become wedged underneath a giant 18-wheeler, which was stuck in the highway. The driver of the 18-wheeler violated company protocol and NJ state law by driving the vehicle without the proper reflective tape and failing to place the reflective, orange, triangle markers behind his truck to warn other motorists of the danger in the road. The little girl, her mother and her sister were still in the backseat of the car at this point, safely in the emergency lane. Out of nowhere, another 18-wheeler came barreling down the highway at normal speeds despite the obstruction in the road ahead. At the last split second, the driver noticed the other 18-wheeler and the car beneath it and swerved to the right to avoid hitting them. He lost control of his truck and slammed into the back of the family’s vehicle, delivering an unimaginable injury to the little girl, her sister and their mother. All were rushed to hospitals. The 8-year-old struggled for life before finally passing on. The excruciating last four years have been made worse by the lack of remorse from both responsible parties — both companies which were operating the 18-wheelers at the time. The first was negligent in that they didn’t put out flares or markers to mark the scene and notify other motorists, and the second was negligent in crashing into the car, causing the injuries that killed the little girl. One of the companies recently settled for $6,000,000—a considerable amount of money, but nothing in comparison to the value of a young life and the promise that adulthood might have meant. The second company has yet to settle, and a Trial by Jury is scheduled for this Fall. Where is the accountability? Companies take consumer money and then refuse to cough up a cent when someone dies as a result of their negligence. The refusal to settle means that good deeds do go unnoticed. Not only do they go unnoticed, but if you happen to get killed in the act, because of a negligent driver, that goes unnoticed too. We will certainly keep you posted with any developments in this case. Representing the family of the little girl who was killed for absolutely no reason, other than her family was doing the right thing, we have a new found understanding of how important personal injury law is. It’s not about squeezing money out of insurance companies—it’s about seeking justice for those who deserve it most.
