David H. Perecman, a veteran New York construction accident lawyer and co-founder of the personal injury law firm of the Perecman Firm, was recently praised by opposing legal counsel as a “very experienced attorney” who is “very aggressive in the courtroom.”
The praise came in a construction accident legal case that made headlines, where a 61-year-old construction worker, represented by this prominent New York construction accident lawyer, had fractured his hip when a scaffold collapsed on a job. New York City Civil Court Judge Eileen A. Rakower ruled for Mr. Perecman’s client, awarding him $2.8 million for his injuries.
The case, Kazimierz Brulinski v. 10 East End Avenue Owner’s Inc., made construction accident news as another example of the rising problem of construction accidents in New York City. In an earlier trial, Supreme Court justice Leland DeGrasse had granted summary judgment for the plaintiff, and Judge Rakower handled the damages portion of the trial.
“It was a large case with a very experienced attorney – David Perecman has won a lot of big verdicts. He’s very aggressive in the courtroom, and he’ll tell you that,” Christopher Murray, a senior attorney at Fiedelman Garfinkel & Lesman and legal counsel who lost that construction accident case, told Judicial Reports.
Mr. Perecman’s reputation as a high-quality New York construction accident lawyer has been built on 25 years of representing victims of construction accidents throughout New York City. Mr. Perecman doggedly advocates for victims of construction accidents and their families to make sure they recover for their injuries and their suffering.
