NEW YORK ― September 18, 2022 ― Kathleen M. Mulholland, a partner in QPWB’s New York office, recently obtained a favorable verdict on a liability claim.

Ms. Mulholland represented the insured who allegedly struct the bicyclist. Plaintiff sued QPWB’s client and a co-defendant who was doubled parked causing the plaintiff to maneuver around the vehicle and allegedly contributing to the accident. Prior to trial, Plaintiff demanded in excess of $500,000 to settle the case and rejected a high-low offer whereby plaintiff would be awarded no less than $275,000.00 and no more than $750,000.
