Unprecedented $16 Million Verdict Won by Top Sexual Abuse Lawyer Michael S Lamonsoff
Michael S Lamonsoff, Esq., achieved a groundbreaking triumph, securing a remarkable $16 million verdict in favor of a child who fell victim to sexual molestation by her teacher at a New York City school.
This remarkable victory emerged from an arduous legal battle, characterized by the obstinate refusal of the City's attorneys to extend any reasonable settlement offer to Mr. Lamonsoff's client prior to the trial.
Initially commencing with a mere $150,000, the City made a paltry offer of $350,000 to resolve the case just moments before the jury commenced their deliberations. In consultation with his clients, Mr. Lamonsoff made the resolute decision to reject the City's offer.
Motivated by their desire to hold the City accountable for their arrogance and to safeguard other children from enduring this abhorrent crime, Mr. Lamonsoff and his clients remained steadfast. Following a relatively brief period of deliberation, the jury unequivocally concluded that the Board of Education demonstrated a reckless disregard for the child entrusted to their care, resulting in one of the most substantial verdicts in New York's storied history.
Undoubtedly, this verdict cannot change the past, nor can any amount of money truly compensate the young girl for the unspeakable horror she endured.
