Connors LLP Obtains Nearly $1.2 Million Jury Verdict for Car Crash Victim

On November 21, 2014, Matthew S. Baldauf was rear-ended by a truck while stopped at a red traffic light at the intersection of Niagara Street and Porter Avenue in the City of Buffalo, New York. Then 32-year-old Mr. Baldauf suffered a low back injury, which required conservative treatment and surgery. Mr. Baldauf retained Connors LLP to pursue a fair outcome. Nicholas A. Romano, Esq., fought for Mr. Baldauf for nearly seven years, including extensive litigation, an interlocutory appeal, and, ultimately, a jury trial.  The insurance company offered only $10,000 to settle Mr. Baldauf’s case. On September 30, 2021, after a two-week jury trial, Mr. Romano obtained a jury verdict of $1,136,500 for Mr. Baldauf’s past and future pain and suffering and expenses – nearly 114 times what the insurance company offered.
