man with a head injury - top 10 personal injury settlements

Finz & Finz, P.C. is honored to announce that we earned several of the top personal injury settlements throughout New York State in 2022. One settlement was one of the largest 10 in the State, two were in the top 20, and nine were in the top 50.

The announcement was made by TopVerdict, which publishes the largest verdicts and settlements in each state and across the country each year.

Top New York State Personal Injury Settlements

The firm’s top settlement of 2022, which ranked as the seventh-highest personal injury settlement in New York State, was brought by a pedestrian against a property owner. This slip and fall work accident case ended in a $4 million settlement on behalf of a deserving client.

The firm’s second-highest ranking settlement of 2022, which was the 20th highest personal injury settlement in New York, was another pedestrian v. property owner claim involving a trip and fall and failure to maintain a safe area of the property. The result: a $1,500,000 settlement for the plaintiff.

Our other top-ranking settlements on the list involved car accidents, medical malpractice, premises liability claims against property owners and nursing home negligence.

A Record of Success

Stuart L. Finz, Senior Trial Attorney and CEO of the firm said he was very proud of his firm’s inclusion in the top personal injury settlements and verdicts of 2022.

“All of my colleagues and I consider it an honor to help those injured by the negligence of others,” Finz said. “Victims of car accidents, medical malpractice, and poorly maintained premises have the right to seek justice when their life is turned upside down by an accident that could have been prevented. We know that a settlement cannot undo the harm that occurred, but it can begin to set things right. We look forward to continuing the work to help New Yorkers recover from devastating accidents and injuries.”

Stuart L. Finz, who has also been selected as a lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, is listed in the New York Law Journal report of Largest Verdicts and has been named by New York Super Lawyers as a top trial attorney for the years 2007-2023.
