Connors & Vilardo attorneys successfully represented the families of two men who were killed when Flight 3407 crashed in Clarence Center, New York. The efforts of the families led to sweeping changes and improvements in the entire aviation industry, and Connors & Vilardo was proud to play a leading role in the historic litigation against the airlines.
Mr. Terrence M. Connors, Esq., was recently profiled by Laws.com. In the exclusive interview, Mr. Connors explained: “In our firm, one day we may be litigating a constitutional claim, while the next day we may be arguing for a profoundly injured person. It’s exciting to come to work to see what is next on my calendar—there is always something new.”
A jury Tuesday awarded $11.1 million to a 59-year-old blind and developmentally disabled man who has lived for 26 years in a Niagara Falls group home run by the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Niagara County. The jury awarded almost everything Connors asked for: $600,000 in past damages, $1 million for future damages and $6 million over 20 years for future medical costs. Jurors added $3.5 million in punitive damages.
