Personal Injury Law Round-Up #5

From the New York Personal Injury Law Blog, the week that was:

  • New York firm Napoli Bern Ripka found themselves in a story regarding possible ethics violations by apportioning the settlement in a manner designed to inflate the firm’s share of the funds, as Andrew Bluestone recounts at his New York Attorney Malpractice blog;
  • And just in case you want some additional reading, the Law Review of New York Law School has an edition all about the plaintiff’s bar, for which I’ve printed a small outake and links to the various articles: Plaintiffs Personal Injury Attorneys Get Analyzed.

Enjoy the weekend.

The New York Personal Injury Law Blog is sponsored by its creator, Eric Turkewitz of The Turkewitz Law Firm. The blog might be considered a form of attorney advertising in accordance with New York rules going into effect February 1, 2007 (22 NYCRR 1200.1, et. seq.) As of July 14, 2008, Law.com became an advertiser, as you can see in the sidebar. Law.com does not control the editorial content of the blog in any way.

Throughout the blog as it develops, you may see examples of cases we have handled, or cases from others, that are used for illustrative purposes. Since all cases are different, and legal authority may change from year to year, it is important to remember that prior results in any particular case do not guarantee or predict similar outcomes with respect to any future matter, including yours, in which any lawyer or law firm may be retained.

Some of the commentary may be become outdated. Some might be a minority opinion, or simply wrong. No reader should consider this site (or any other) to be authoritative, and if a legal issue is presented, the reader should contact an attorney of his or her own choosing for advice.

Finally, we are not responsible for the comments of others that may be added to this site.
