case against UPS that arose from a truck/motorcycle collision and involved
the traumatic amputation of the dominant arm. After a long trial, the Jury
awarded a verdict in favor of our client in excess of $11 million dollars.
This verdict is the highest verdict in the history of Warren County, New

a jury awarded $630,000 to our injured client. See our results page for
