Personal Injury Attorney Richard M. Kenny has been selected among America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators for 2021
Recently, Attorney Richard M. Kenny was selected by the law firm Richard M. Kenny among America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators® for 2021.
In order for an attorney to be considered for this award, he or she must have had a lawsuit with alleged damages of at least $ 2,000,000. From here, each attorney selected for this award undergoes a qualitative comparative analysis, in which the organization evaluates many aspects of a attorney’s qualifications and practice, including his or her experience, remarkable case results on behalf of its clients, and standing among its peers , Impact on their community, and more.
Each year America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators® select only the 100 best qualified lawyers in each state for this prestigious award. This means that less than 1% of attorneys in the US receive such an award – and far fewer in New York state.
Attorney Kenny began his work as a plaintiff over 30 years ago and has passed over 150 judgments since then. Because of his dedicated commitment to helping accident victims across New York City, he has received multiple awards throughout his career, including being named one of the best lawyers in America by his peers from 2013 to date.
One of the accident victims successfully represented by Attorney Kenny is a construction worker who lost his leg while building a motorway because his leg was trapped between two concrete masts. In most construction accidents, construction workers will only make claims for damages. Attorney Kenny realized, however, that the damage far exceeded any compensation that could be reclaimed in such a claim, and as a result, initiated a lawsuit based on a novel theory of a law that had not previously been attempted. In the end, they reclaimed $ 6.2 million in severance pay on their client’s behalf.
In another construction accident, the law firm received $ 4.35 million in compensation from Richard M. Kenny for an accident victim who suffered brain damage after falling from a scaffolding through no fault of their own. In the process, attorney Kenny proved that the victim did not have the safety equipment required to do his job. As a result, he fell from the scaffolding and suffered permanent brain damage.
Attorney Kenny is also a frequent contributor to the community. After the 9/11 tragedy, he volunteered for the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. After Hurricane Sandy devastated the east coast, Attorney Kenny worked as a legal volunteer for Sandy Relief Effort. Richard M. Kenny’s law firm has also collected US $ 25 million from first responders injured in response to the 9/11 disaster.
