|Reported Cases||Significant Representative Matters: Obtained a defense verdict in a subrogation matter in which plaintiff, an insurance company, alleged that our client caused his automobile to collide with its insured's vehicle. We joined plaintiff's insured as an additional defendant on the basis that his own negligence caused the accident and sought a monetary award for the damages to our client's vehicle. The judge issued a verdict in our favor and against plaintiff. In addition, the judge ruled that the additional defendant's failure to obey the Pennsylvania Rules of the Road that pertain to passing a vehicle and use of a turn signal caused the accident and awarded our client the amount of damages to his vehicle. Obtained a defense verdict at a Philadelphia Arbitration trip and fall case. The plaintiff claimed that she tripped and fell on a mat in front of the counter at our client's hoagie shop, resulting in injuries to her neck, shoulder and back. The Arbitration panel found in our favor because the plaintiff failed to sustain her burden of proving that the mat was defective and that our client was on notice of any dangerous condition prior to her alleged fall.; Assisted Ralph P. Bocchino, Esquire in obtaining a defense verdict in a binding Arbitration against two plaintiffs who were suing for property damage, loss of rental use and costs and fees attenuated to the underlying matter. One of the properties was completely destroyed and the other property was significantly damaged due to improper excavation. We represented the homeowners, who were having their property raised, excavated and built up with the intention of renting/selling the property. Concepts of contractual indemnification, common law indemnification and Pennsylvania's Perry-Ruzzi Rule were debated and argued. The judge rendered a defense verdict and also directed attorney's fees as part of the award.|
