Plaintiff was represented by Alan Shapey, Esq. of Lipsig, Shapey, Manus & Moverman. Plaintiff’s counsel asked the jury to award $5,000,000 in future medical care expenses, $5,000,000 for past pain and suffering, and $15,000,000 for future pain and suffering. After a day of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict in favor of defendant. The jury concluded that the building negligently maintained the stairs but that the plaintiff did not establish a causal connection to plaintiff’s injuries. Therefore the jury did not consider plaintiff’s injuries and awarded $0 in damages.
