  • $808,000 obtained after a jury trial for a construction worker injured in a fall down a chimney while doing brick pointing. The lawyers for the Defendant building owner contended that the worker made a good recovery, that he could return to work in the construction field, and that his present physical condition was being exaggerated at trial. The jury rejected their contentions, awarding the injured worker a verdict in his favor.
  • $670,000 for a woman who tripped and fell on a New York City sidewalk and sustained injuries to her knee. The City never deemed the case worthy of a settlement offer prior to trial;

She claimed she was unable to return to work for approximately six months following the accident, and that she suffered from extreme pain on a daily basis in her back and neck approximately three years following the accident. The jury rejected the defense lawyers contentions of exaggeration and awarded Mr. Arze's client past pain and suffering, future pain and suffering, and future medical expenses.
    $360,000 for a young girl who was riding her bicycle out of her driveway onto a roadway and was struck by a motor vehicle proceeding on the road. An offer of $60,000 was made by the defendants in the case representing what they perceived was the full value of the case;
  • $175,000 for a woman who was a passenger on a New York City Bus which was involved in an accident with another vehicle on the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. She sustained injuries to her neck which required several years of physical therapy. An offer of settlement of the case was made at trial for $5,000.
