Some Examples of Recent Awards
$900,000 FOR MOTORCYCLE COLLISION
An experienced motorcyclist was struck on a Pennsylvania Highway by a tractor trailer. The rider sustained a catastrophic injury to his leg. The tractor trailer was based in El Paso, Texas.

Using flying drone technology and the most advanced technology, our experts were able to generate an accident reconstruction that pointed blame on the truck.
MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AWARDED IN COMPENSATION FOR LEAD POISONED CHILDREN
When corporations, business owners, landlords, and others are more interested in profits than safety, people get hurt. Corners are cut, and while profits may increase, the public is put at risk. This is usually the case when landlords do not properly care for their tenants, and toxic lead paint causes catastrophic cognitive injuries to children. The greatest reward for a lawyer is knowing they have helped make an injured child whole again. The lawyers at Steiner & Fish have spent years battling landlords and other corporations in order to make living conditions safer for members of our community. Tens of millions of dollars in awards have been recovered for victims of lead point poisoning. A thorough knowledge of the medicine, the construction, ingestion process, and the damage the lead does, makes us experts in this area of law. We would like to get you fully compensated if you or a child has been the victim of a toxic tort.
$400,000 FOR BROKEN ANKLE
A resident of Brooklyn was on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale and out one night with his friends. When the owner of Murphy's Law Bar & Grill had a dispute with some neighbors, the owner pulled most of his security staff out of his bar to help him. The two bouncers who remained at Murphy's Law were unsupervised, untrained, and inexperienced. They misinterpreted the actions of our client and brutally threw him into a back alleyway breaking his ankle. We took this matter to federal court in Florida and the jury held Murphy's Law Bar & Grill accountable and awarded the client $400,000 for his pain and suffering.
$200,000 FOR SNOWBOARDING FALL
When a newlywed couple decided to get snowboarding lessons at Hunter Mountain, the instructor let tragedy occur. After hardly teaching the basics, the instructor had our client and new husband proceed down the slope. The instructor expected him to fall after a few feet. Instead, the coordinated husband traveled further down the terrain, built up speed, and had no instruction on how to turn or stop. He fell and sustained significant leg injuries.
Ski and snowboard injuries are the hardest to successfully hold the resorts liable for. As many know, the waiver forms usually protect the resorts from liability for customer injuries. When this case went to trial, Steiner & Fish successfully showed the jury how the resort's instructor was negligent. Despite the resort hiring a well-known top instructor to act as its expert, and being represented by one of the nation's leading ski injury attorneys, Steiner & Fish was able to properly get its client compensated and held Hunter Mountain responsible.
$265,000 AWARDED AFTER SLIP ON ICE
When members of the community are injured because a landlord does the wrong thing, members of the community must hold the landlord accountable. That is what our jury system is based on.
When a landlord negligently shoveled snow and ice in a way that led to an injury, we took that case to trial. Steiner & Fish convinced a jury to protect the woman who fell and they held the landlord accountable. Good verdicts make our community a safer place.
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS AWARDED AFTER SLIP IN FLOODED LOBBY
Water accumulated in the lobby of a building after a rainstorm. The lawyers at Steiner & Fish investigated the cause and recognized that the revolving door was acting as a water wheel causing the lobby to flood. The building sought to overcome this problem by haphazardly assembling long rugs in the lobby. This made the situation worse. With a thorough understanding of the coefficients of friction on different flooring materials and using the proper experts at trial, Steiner & Fish convinced a jury to compensate its client with hundreds of thousands of dollars.
