How We’ve Helped

Hersh Kirtman Injury Law helps those who have been injured, suffered harm, or lost loved ones by the negligence and wrongdoing of others. Our team is uniquely experienced, determined, and driven to obtain the justice that each client deserves.

We learn about our clients, their loss, their suffering, and their goals. We embrace each client as though they are part of the family. Our job is to tell our client’s stories. To do that completely and effectively, we have to genuinely know them. We do. That is the only way to truly achieve justice for our clients.

While we cannot promise any outcome, our ability to succeed for our clients is best demonstrated by the many instances where we’ve been able to achieve verdicts and settlements:

$35,000,000 – Jury Verdict in Laspes v. Castillo – Car Crash – Client suffered spinal cord injury in a tragic car crash. The team tried the case on the client’s behalf and the jury returned this substantial verdict acknowledging the severity of the client’s life-changing injuries.

$27,000,000Gonzalez v. Lifetime Brands, Inc. – Product Liability/Defective Pressure Cooker – The client, a young child, suffered severe burns and partial loss of limbs when a nearby pressure cooker exploded. Numerous consumer product experts failed to identify the defect in the pressure cooker. The team though, not only discovered that the pressure cooker was made with an inadequately sized locking mechanism, but also that the manufacturer secretly fixed the flaw without notifying the consuming public. This monumental recovery enabled the client and her family to move into a home suitable for her needs, to provide for a lifetime of life-saving medical care and treatment, and to ensure her financial security.

$23,065,991 – Jury Verdict in Alamo-Cruz v. Affordable Treeman – Premises Liability/Defective Equipment – Client suffered a brain injury and broken bones after defective equipment provided by his employer resulted in him falling from a tree. This complicated case lasted more than five years and resulted in a jury verdict of $23,065,991, which provided crucial compensation needed to help him with critical medical needs, and the ability to live more comfortably despite the injuries he suffered.

$8,800,000 – Medical Malpractice – The client suffered severe injuries leaving him in a minimally conscious state due to medical malpractice. Despite the unlikelihood of survival, the family wanted him to be given every opportunity to recover. This settlement did just that, providing for life-prolonging medical care and the possibility of improvement.
