$8,000,000.00 Settlement for a Man Injured When Struck by a Runway High Rail Crane

On July 10, 2004, Luis Cevaseo, was performing his duties as a Project Manager for an engineering firm and was positioned on a flat bed high rail vehicle located in the East River tunnel in Queens, New York, when a high rail crane owned, operated and controlled by AMTRACK was caused to crash into the flat bed high rail vehicle on which Mr. Cevasco was working, causing him to sustain severe and disabling injuries. Suit was instituted against the National Railroad Passenger Corp. (AMTRACK) in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York. Thereafter, several other parties were cited in as defendants in the action. On September 11, 2008, following a second day of mediation, the case settled for $8,000,000.00.

Client Reviews
Attorney Foley spent 8 long years as my lawyer, during that time he was my advocate, my friend, and above all an amazing lawyer. I wanted to write this review because in most cases lawyers are concerned with their payday, but not Michael Foley, though he was able to get me an amazing settlement, he became like part of my family, truly advocating for the best medical care during the long process. MIchael is an absolute Bulldog when it comes to protecting his clients, if you need someone in your corner, who won’t ever give up on your case, and actually listens to your needs, then look no further..
