Pillinger Miller Tarallo, LLP Is Pleased to Report Some of Our Most Recent Trial Results

Trial Attorney: Lawrence J. Buchman (Nassau County) Larry Buchman of Pillinger Miller Tarallo represented a defendant driver in a civil case for personal injuries who had pled guilty to DWI and vehicular assault in the accident. The pedestrian plaintiff was demanding a mid six-figure amount over our client’s insurance which was lowered to $150,000 at jury selection. The essential evidence was that our driver was driving under the speed limit in the middle lane of a Nassau County highway when the pedestrian staggered into the car’s path over 100 feet from the closest crosswalk. The jury came back with an 80% verdict against the plaintiff pedestrian who had a blood alcohol level two times higher than our defendant driver and the pedestrian crossed a six lane highway while “jay-staggering or jay-stumbling.” Prior to receiving the verdict, the plaintiff accepted a nominal four-figure amount of money over the policy for settlement. Trial Attorney: Christopher G. Todd (Kings County) In this case, Plaintiff was struck in a crosswalk by a driver who ran a red light and fled the scene. The impact threw Plaintiff into the side of our client’s car, which was legally turning left in front of Plaintiff. Plaintiff sued our clients only, and did not attempt to identify the fleeing driver, nor pursue an MVAIC claim. Our pre-trial investigation was crucial in identifying and garnering the cooperation of a non-party witness who provided critical testimony at trial. At trial, there was a unanimous defense verdict. Trial Attorney: Robert J. Gironda (Richmond County) In this case, the insured driver stopped at a stop sign and then proceeded through the...
PMT Annual Golf Tournament Raises over $13K for CrossRoads Programs At-Risk Kids

PMT Annual Golf Tournament Raises over $13K for CrossRoads Programs At-Risk Kids

Over the Summer the PMT Law Firm held it’s Annual Pillinger Miller Tarallo Golf Outing. It was a great day with Raffles, 50/50, gift baskets, prizes, silent and live auctions. Most importantly, with the help of our friends, employees and clients we were able to raise $13,492.20 for Crossroads Programs. Crossroads Programs empower youth who are homeless, abandoned, abused, or at-risk to lead healthy, productive lives. Crossroads Programs was founded in 1978 through a collaboration of interfaith community leaders committed to providing shelter to runaway and homeless youth. These leaders formed a volunteer board of directors and incorporated Crossroads as a private, non-profit organization. Since that time, the agency has developed considerable expertise in serving youth who must transition to independent young adulthood without the support and guidance typically provided by family. The Crossroads continuum of care for homeless youth – shelter care, outreach services, group homes, residential treatment, community-based treatment homes, life skills training and family therapy – has resulted in improved outcomes and enhanced futures for the thousands of kids and families we have served.

PMT Attorney Christopher Todd Delivers a Win

PMT Attorney Christopher Todd Delivers a Win

Christopher G. Todd of Pillinger Miller Tarallo represented a driver accused of striking a pedestrian in a crosswalk on Staten Island. Prior to trial, plaintiff was demanding the full policy, and later reduced her demand to $80,000. There was no offer and liability was tried in Kings County Supreme Court. Our pre-trial investigation was crucial in identifying and garnering the cooperation of an independent eyewitness to provide critical testimony at trial. What the evidence showed was that while plaintiff was crossing the street, a vehicle struck her and threw her into the side of our client’s car as he was legally making a left turn in front of her. The other driver fled the scene and was never identified. After hearing all the evidence, the jury unanimously determined our client was not at fault for the...
