  • Partner Allan Siegel's Success Against the Post Office Continues

    Posted By Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata, Siegel, P.C. || 11-Aug-2008

    Allan M. Siegel recently settled a case against the United States Postal Service for $97,500. Our client was driving home from a night club when she was struck in the rear by a tractor trailer owned by the postal service. The postal worker alleged that he struck our client's vehicle because her rear taillights were not working. However, he admitted that he saw her vehicle 50 yards back, yet still struck it at a high rate of speed. Our client suffered injuries to her neck and back, and incurred approximately $30,000 in medical expenses. This settlement follows a $450,000 verdict entered against the postal service by United States District Court Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson in a case that Allan tried, as well as a $600,000 settlement against the postal service in a case where a United States Post Office tractor-trailer cut off our client while he was travelling on his motorcycle. The $97,500 settlement was obtained at mediation, prior to trial.
