$15,000,000 Premises Liability

On August 16, 2013, a young girl and her family were on the Macy’s escalators when her right foot became entrapped and swallowed by the top of the escalator stair. After freeing her leg, emergency personnel transported the child to Hackensack University Medical Center. While there, a team of specialists treated her during her 7 week hospitalization.

The girl had a total of 22 procedures to save her foot from amputation and completely rebuild it. She received skin and muscle grafts from other parts of her body, and endured lung and kidney failure from all of the trauma. The child remained hospitalized for almost 3 months, followed by years of physical therapy.

The escalator was found to be outdated and not properly taken care of. There had been numerous incidents involving the escalator in the two years before the child’s injury, where customers’ shoes had been caught in the mechanism. A state-mandated inspection of the escalator originally scheduled in March 2013 had been canceled by Macy’s and never rescheduled. The suit was filed against Macy’s, as well as the maintenance company who oversaw the safety of the escalators. It was settled for $15,000,000 by Samuel L. Davis.

$ 9,000,000 Premises Liability

On the evening of December 18, 2009, a then-20 year old man walked up the stairs to a subway station in Brooklyn, N.Y. While waiting, he was caused to trip and fall due to a hole in the platform, and landed on the tracks. He was knocked unconscious and remained there until the next train arrived, running him over.

The young man underwent amputation of both legs below the knees, as well as a serious hand injury, which may require future finger amputation. He spent nearly 4 months in the hospital, where he developed a MRSA infection. After healing, he went on to rehabilitation, and was fitted for prosthetic legs. He filed suit against the New York City Transit Authority, as well as the Metropolitan Authority, for failing to repair the subway platform. A settlement was reached in the amount of $9,000,000.00. Attorney Marc C. Saperstein oversaw the case and represented the man.
