Largest Reported NJ Personal Injury Settlement during the Court’s 2022-2023 term

Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. recognized as the “#1 Lawyers” in Jewish Standard’s 2023 Readers’ Choice Survey

Teaneck, NJ: The personal injury law firm of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. is honored to be selected as Reader’s Choice #1 Lawyers by the publishers and readers of the Jewish Standard, a newspaper serving North Jersey’s Jewish community for over ninety years. This remarkable achievement not only publicizes the firm’s dedication to legal excellence and client satisfaction but also highlights the unique journey of its founders, who began as childhood religious school friends at the Bergenfield-Dumont Jewish Community Center.

Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., a personal injury law firm serving injured clients in NewJersey and New York was established in 1987 and has over the years, through its thirty injury lawyers, amassed a string of seven and eight-figure settlements and verdicts. In August of 2023, founding partner Samuel L. Davis was recognized by the New Jersey Law Journal as having achieved the largest reported personal injury settlement in New Jersey during the Court’s 2022-2023 term as part of its reporting of New Jersey’s Top 20 personal injury awards.

As reported by the NJ Law Journal, the number one case involved an out-of-court settlement of $28 million on behalf of an electrician suffering burns from an electrical explosion. Davis would have made the same list a second time with another settlement involving a drowning but for a confidentiality agreement. Sam Davis, a trial lawyer certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney was also in the national spotlight in December of 2022 when Madison Square Garden employed facial recognition to bar all lawyers working at Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, PC, as well as other adverse injury lawyers from entry at any of its properties including several prominent restaurants and concert venues because of cases filed against Madison Square Garden. This policy backfired when one of the firm’s partners tried to take her daughter’s Girl Scout Brownie Troop on a field trip to Radio City Music Hall’s Christmas show. Unknown to the attorney, Radio City is a property of MSG and they employed facial recognition which alerted security only to eject attorney Kelly Conlon from the venue in front of her nine-year-old daughter and her fellow Brownies. Weeks later, attorney Sam Davis was barred from entry to an MSG venue further igniting a national debate about facial technology and a person’s right to privacy. Due to the public outcry and potential legal exposure, the Garden rescinded its anti-injury lawyer ban. Davis later settled the firm’s injured client’s slip and fall case involving MSG’s LAVO restaurant for $5.3 million.

Recognition by the Jewish Standard as its readers’ number one Law firm has special significance. Both Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., and The Jewish Standard are located in Teaneck.

Founding partners, Marc C. Saperstein, and Garry R. Salomon, both also certified trial attorneys together with the firm’s additional eight injury lawyer partners have amassed a substantial record of multi-million-dollar settlements and have been recognized by several national accrediting organizations. Through the years, the firm has been involved in some of America’s largest mass tort and class action cases.

The firm proudly does not turn away small injury cases because of its loyalty to its New Jersey and New York clients. According to its Managing Partner, Garry R. Salomon, “We built our firm from the ground up by representing all kinds of people suffering injuries, large and small and it’s been our honor and privilege to serve all of New York and New Jersey’s communities.”

For over thirty-five years, the partners, attorneys and staff of New Jersey and New York’s Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. have helped over 35,000 families achieve justice for injuries caused by the negligence of others.
