Attorney MacDonnell Cited for Top Two Bicycle Settlements in NY

The firm is excited to announce that Attorney Robert R. MacDonnell, an aggressive litigator at the Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP, has recently been recognized by New York Law Journal for having the top two bicycle settlements in the state for 2012. The first case, Galindo v. Fenster, was represented by our firm in March of this year. The plaintiff had been involved in a multiple car collision while riding his bicycle, leading him to suffer a serious hemorrhage. He was subsequently forced to undergo extensive medical treatment, so he decided to pursue compensation with Attorney MacDonnell's help shortly after. The case was taken to New York Supreme Court, and after a well-fought battle, the firm was able to recover a $1,050,000 settlement on behalf of the client.

The next case, Herrera-Ferino v. Barlett Dairy Inc., was brought to the attention of our firm just a few months later. The victim had been struck by an inattentive truck driver while riding his bicycle in New York, so he made the decision to enlist the help of Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP. In September of 2012, we took the case to Bronx Supreme Court. By implementing an effective legal strategy, Attorney MacDonnell was eventually able to obtain a settlement of $1,000,000 for the victim. It is for this reason that he has since been recognized for his impressive track record of successful case results. In the publication, "Top New York Settlements of 2012," Mr. MacDonnell has secured the top two spots in the bicycle division of the Motor Vehicle category for the work that he has done in the previously mentioned cases.

Not only has he been recognized as the leader of his division, but he has also managed to blow away the competition. The next highest settlement that has been recognized in this publication was $30,000—a departure from the $1,050,000 and $1,000,000 settlements that Mr. MacDonnell was able to obtain for his clients. For this reason, the firm could not be more excited to share the news of his well-deserved accomplishments. We believe that this is truly indicative of the exceptional legal services that Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP is capable of providing—regardless of how minor or severe the circumstances of a case may be.
