Miami Personal Injury Attorney Shows He's Still Top Boating Accident Lawyer

Press Release provided by Jason Neufeld on August 27, 2012

LawyerCentral.com, August 27, 2012 — FLORIDA — In May, 2012, Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert was approached by another law firm. This other law firm represented a man who was injured when an old wooden set of stairs (connecting a yacht to the dock) collapsed as the man was disembarking from the vessel. The owner of the boat had been previously notified of the stair / gangplank's shoddy condition, but elected to avoid making any repairs or replacements. The man was significantly injured. Since the boating accident occurred while the client was technically a "crew member," maritime law controlled and so the case was brought in Broward County Federal Court. 

Knowing of David Kleinberg's reputation as a relentless, yet entertaining and incisive advocate in the courtroom, the other law firm - only two weeks before opening statements - asked if David would step in as lead counsel to try the case. Mr. Kleinberg cemented his reputation back in June 2011 when he led the charge in a 6.5 weeklong product liability trial in Palm Beach County, representing a young girl severely injured in a wave runner accident. The jury brought back a $38,000,000 verdict apportioning Yamaha (the defendant) with 88% of the liability.

The more recent boating-accident trial lasted only four days. The jury took a day and a half to deliberate but, on May 20, 2012, returned a verdict of $350,000.

With more than 80 combined years of experience representing Florida clients in even the most complex personal injury matters, Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA, has gained a reputation as a trusted legal resource.
