Michael Paglione recently settled a case against Montgomery Township for $3.575 million on behalf of a retired university professor who was rendered quadriplegic. The case made statewide news when it was filed in 2008.

The client fell backwards from the township’s senior bus while assisting a 93-year-old woman to remove her wheelchair. At the time of his fall, our client was a health and fit 71-year-old who regularly played badminton with his grandchildren and enjoyed riding his bike on country roads in Somerset County. Today he is a quadriplegic who needs 24-hour care.

Michael successfully argued that Montgomery Township was negligent in its transporting of its seniors. The bus was equipped with a handicap lift but the driver believed it was broken because she did not know how to operate it. The favorable resolution of this case comes after Michael successfully concluded three other cases this year totaling more than $2 million dollars.
