Cancer-stricken Ground Zero worker receives compensation cheque for 0$

His award had been $10,005, but his lawyers at the firm Worby, Groner, Edelman & Napoli Bern lopped off $2579 for unitemised legal expenses.

Then they took a 33.3 per cent fee of $2124. They also subtracted $352, a fee to the lawyer who referred him.

The remaining $4950 was withheld for unspecified "liens", the letter says.

Mr Galvis thinks this was repayment of workers' compensation for aid."

In May 2005, a friend gave him a business card passed out by the law firm. A representative came to his home.

"The man told me that more than likely I will get sick and I would get 60 per cent of whatever he won," Mr Galvis said.

"He even mentioned the words 'millions of dollars'."

In April 2010, he got a $10,000 offer. A letter from the law firm said he could expect about $5000 after expenses and fees.

It warned that if his case went to trial and he lost, he could owe the firm up to $100,000 in costs.

He took the settlement.

Another scummy lawyer story:


Duped by a blonde too good to be true, 'Dirty DUI' victim seeks redemption
Long story short, a man was involved in a divorce. His soon to be ex and her lawyer conspire with a PI to set the guy up. PI hires a hot blonde to contact him on Match.com. Hot blonde meets him at local bar and brings along hot friend. They feed him shots and talk up a big game. The flash their boobs and invite him to come for a dip in the hot tub. They leave. He follows. PI calls buddy cop and has him waiting. Hot chicks run red light and draw dupe through.

DUI...

Divorce settlement goes from 60/40 to 90/10 and they use the DUI to keep him away from his kids.

Rescuers sue Ohio woman saved from flaming vehicle


MARION, Ohio —

Two Ohio men honored as heroes for their actions after a 2009 car crash are now suing the woman they rescued from a burning vehicle.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the suit filed in central Ohio's Marion County by David Kelly and Mark Kincaid claims Theresa Tanner was at fault and that saving her left the men with disabling injuries. They're each seeking upwards of $25,000 in damages.
