$60,000 Settlement by Attorneys Jonathan Lang and Joseph Russo

Attorneys Jonathan Lang and Joseph Russo obtained a $60,000 settlement on behalf of a lovely woman who suffered a meniscus tear requiring arthroscopic surgery when she tripped on a raised lip of a sidewalk paver going into work after a lunch break.

Attorney Russo commented that “this case was tricky because every premises liability case has a built in component of comparative fault. Fortunately, our client was well-prepared for her recorded statement and made a fantastic impression on the investigator assigned to take the statement for the insurance carrier. We documented the condition of the tripping hazard before it was repaired and retained one of the most prominent knee surgeons in Boston to provide us with a permanent injury rating.”

Attorney Russo also commented “Attorney Lang, who recently joined the firm, did a great job working on this case and immediately added value to the file throughout the negotiation process. This case was a great example of how two lawyers can work together to maximize the value of a case.”

Client Reviews
After my accident I was in so much pain and so confused that I didn't know where to go, so I contacted the Injury Law Center. Joe would sit and he would listen and talk to me and hear what I was saying and what was really going on with me. He explained everything. It really made a difference and gave me a peace of mind. I knew that he knew me well enough to take care of my best interests. He heard the story behind everything and made sure that the insurance company had to take action. Deb Brosnan
If someone I cared for was going to be going through something like this I would definitely recommend Injury Law Center as your first point of reference. My case went on for a very long time, over a year, and we were on very good terms the entire time. Attorney Russo came to visit me several times in the hospital and brought me things to do in rehab. They were very supportive the entire time. Injury Law Center was able to exceed my expectations and I am able to live comfortably without having to work. Valerie
I had a car accident that affected my business and my ability to deal with insurance companies was very difficult. Joe stayed the course and we were offered very fair compensation.I think it was because of Joe and the hard work of the team. It was a very long trial but it turned out to be in our favor which we were very happy about. Mat Morello
