Scott Haworth: Trial Results for Two Haworth Coleman & Gerstman Cases

Scott Haworth serves as managing partner at Haworth Coleman & Gerstman, LLC, in New York City. He is a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel and chairs the Defense Research Institute’s specialized litigation group for recreational products.

Haworth Coleman & Gerstman represents a range of clients, including manufacturers of industrial machinery, recreational equipment, and children’s products. The trial results from two of the firm’s cases reveal the firm’s extensive legal experience.

In one product liability matter tried in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County, a clothing manufacturer and a plaintiff entered into a lengthy trial. The manufacturer wished to settle the case for an amount that was substantially smaller than the sustainable verdict value for the injury suffered by the plaintiff. After the court questioned the jury, the jury provided a verdict that awarded $1.3 million to the plaintiff.

In another product liability case tried in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Kings County, a manufacturer of agricultural machinery offered to settle for $50,000. Although the plaintiff’s pre-trail demand was $1.5 million, the plaintiff settled for the lesser amount.
