$550,000 – Unsafe Premises

We never gave up advocating for the surviving daughters of their hard working immigrant father who succumbed to injuries from a house fire in Queens.  The insurance company steadfastly refused to pay arguing that intoxication and smoking in bed caused the fire and that their father first survived but then voluntarily went back into the burning building to save a neighbor.  Using the legal doctrine of “Danger Invites Rescue”, we were able to secure a fair measure of justice because of an absentee landlord’s failure to have working smoke detectors, which our fire expert determined would have likely prevented the fire from spreading.

Steve Hymowitz an extraordinary attorney!!!!
He was the 5 th attorney that I had called after I was In a bad car accident that I sustained lifetime injuries from. All the other attorneys said “no, sorry I can’t help you since you had a fender bender years ago with some minor injuries when someone hit you at a red light.
I was flabbergasted because the injuries I had prior, were so minimal . The debilitating and multiple issues I had in this accident, I knew would be lifetime struggle but Nobody would listen to me.
So calling Mr Hymowitz’s office, I was told it would be very tough and he would do extensive research regarding all aspects of this case and fight every detail on my behalf …and he did!!!!! His Practice being in New York and New Jersey was a plus for my case.

Lynn, his right hand paralegal, ( who guided me every step of the way) told me through this whole process you watch, “he’s amazing, he is an extraordinary attorney and you’ll be amazed at what he could do ….. she was right!!!!
Lynn made this process so much easier with her continued communication to me, her empathy and her tolerance!
I have been in the medical and business field for years prior to the accident. I feel that I was very lucky and blessed to have this very professional, respectful, and very educated Gentleman as my warrior who truly fought so hard for me!!! I loved that he always kept me in the loop with great communication!
I found him to be a very caring human being!

My settlement was more than I could’ve imagined!!
And that’s because he proved the truth of my injuries!

I am forever grateful for Steve Hymowitz!
