Some examples of personal injury cases successfully taken on by the D'Amato Law Firm, from product liability and slips and falls, to crashes and negligent construction.

By Alexa D’Amato Barrera, Esq.


The D’Amato Law Firm specializes in personal injury cases, however, the firm’s policy is to avoid publishing the cases settled on behalf of clients, and for how much they settle. Boasting verdicts and settlements would tout the firm, but at the expense of clients’ privacy, so they just don’t do it. The attorneys at the D’Amato Law Firm are honored to represent clients to their satisfaction and most of the referrals to the law office come from word of mouth from clients they have successfully represented.


Instead of touting the firm’s verdicts, here are some examples of cases that they recently either have resolved or that are active now in the office. Female gender is used for all of these cases, to further protect the identity of the clients.


Product Liability


A client borrowed her friend’s battery charger which exploded in her pocket causing severe burns to her leg and lower torso.


The frame of a client’s bicycle cracked causing a severe fracture to the client’s leg, which required surgery. An expert found the bicycle was negligently manufactured.


Fall down


A client fell down a set of stairs at a condominium breaking her foot, which required surgery with a plate and screws. It was the first time she went down those stairs. A expert opines that the stairs were not built to code.


A client was leaving a store when she fell breaking her hip. An expert inspected the threshold and found it was broken and not to code.


A client was a carpenter working on top of the third floor of a home construction job when a gust of wind carried him and a piece of plywood that he was carrying off the roof 30 feet to the ground. The homeowners were acting as general contracts and were aware of the exceedingly high winds that day and insisted work proceed.


Auto Crashes


A client sustained herniated discs and a shoulder injury in a car crash. An investigation revealed that the responsible driver was working for Uber at the time of the crash.


The driver of an oncoming car was looking at her cell phone and crossed the double yellow line hitting a client’s car head on. The client lost consciousness and was helicoptered to the hospital where she was diagnosed with a broken leg and a facial laceration that ultimately scarred.


A client was a passenger in a vehicle that was turning left at an intersection. Another car ran a red light causing the client to sustain a severe comminuted fracture of her upper arm requiring surgery with a significant keloid scar.


A client was hit from behind at an intersection. She had neck surgery just one year prior. When the client came to the D’Amato Law Firm, she was really concerned her neck was reinjured. Ultimately her neck was fine, but her shoulder had a tear that required surgery.


Dog Bites


A client was at her friend’s house when their dog attacked the client from behind, requiring surgery with plates and screws.


Negligent Construction


A mantle came off the wall hitting a client’s child in the face and head. The mantle was not properly designed or constructed.


While a client was working, someone other than her employer threw something off the roof injuring the client, who had a prior back surgery.


Negligent Supervision


A teacher developed a relationship of an inappropriate nature with a client’s child, causing significant psychological trauma.


Public Entity Lawsuits


A client’s spouse was walking along the shoreline in ankle deep water when the beach collapsed and he was tragically killed. Discovery proved the lifeguards knew that the waters would significantly erode away the beach causing cave-ins.


A client was riding her bicycle on the street, which unbeknownst to her, had a massive pothole which was filled with water. She went flying over her handlebars sustaining serious permanent injuries. The neighbors had written numerous letters to the city alerting them to the dangerous condition that could not be seen after it rained and the significant danger it posed to cyclists.
