• ADM's Neil Palmieri Obtains Defense Verdict in Boiler Accident Case

Neil Palmieri, a partner in ADM's Albertson office, recently obtained a defense verdict in Bronx County.  Plaintiff, in his early 40's, was injured when an angle iron fell from a boiler breeching system located overhead.  Plaintiff claimed that he needed a cervical fusion and surgery to resolve bi-lateral carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of his injuries.  Mr. Palmieri successfully argued that our client did not install any angle irons onto the system and simply installed a pre-fabricated breeching system which was designed and manufactured by others.  The jury returned a significant damages verdict for the Plaintiff, but also ultimately found that our client was 0% responsible for the accident.
