CG&P recently closed its file on a negligence action involving an automobile accident in which a construction vehicle owned and operated by a co-defendant was allegedly parked negligently on the roadway in the area of a construction project. Plaintiff, the passenger of a car which collided with the construction vehicle, sustained serious injuries as a result of the accident. CG&P’s client, a preeminent commercial construction company serving Long Island for nearly 50 years, was the General Contractor of the construction project on which the construction vehicle was parked. The case settled before trial but CG&P convinced plaintiff’s counsel that its client would not contribute any money toward settlement. Thereafter, CG&P aggressively pursued reimbursement of legal fees and expenses for its client based on cross-claims for contractual indemnification asserted by CG&P. At the conclusion of the case, CG&P’s client dubbed the Firm, “The most diligent and hardworking law firm we have ever worked with.” The case was handled by CG&P Partner, Domingo Gallardo, and Christopher Rogers, Of Counsel to the Firm.
