Firm Overview

In April 19, 2007, a Supreme Court New York County jury returned a verdict in the case of Florencio Hernandez v. Michelle Vavra , Liberty Lines, Inc., Evelio Torres and Mungo One, Inc, awarding the Plaintiff, Mr. Proner's client Florencio Hernandez $3,309,000. The case was tried before the Honorable Justice of the Supreme Court Carol Huff. The award came on a case the Defendants were only offering $150,000 prior to trial. Mr. Hernandez suffered a stroke while in the hospital after being struck as a pedestrian by a taxicab that was involved in an accident with a bus. The Defendant's claimed his stroke was unrelated to the accident and was because he had seven high risk factors for a stroke unrelated to the accident including prior strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, a history of heart ailments, arteriosclerosis, and smoking. When the accident happened Mr. Hernandez was already disabled from his prior heart condition unrelated to the accident and was in fact walking to his doctor's office for a post operative visit to his Doctor after having four heart stints placed one week prior to the accident. Mr. Proner obviously convinced the jury that Mr. Hernandez's stoke was related to the accident and his quality of life subsequent to the accident was greatly diminished.
