The law firm of Edelman, Krasin & Jaye has a long track record of impressive verdicts and settlements in the arena of medical malpractice and personal injury litigation, and has a reputation for tenacity and diligence. Senior partner Lawrence P. Krasin was recently named among 2015’s “Top 10 Legal Eagles” by the Long Island Pulse. The honors pay tribute to attorneys whose expertise and exemplary work make them a cut above the rest within their field, whether practicing in banking, real estate or personal injury law.
Krasin was spotlighted for his outstanding results in personal injury litigation, though his diverse caseload includes medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, rentals and property management claims. Mr. Krasin believes in giving back to his community and devotes much of his spare time to charitable organizations. He has served as a board member of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, as well as Walk the Walk, which is committed to the prevention of elder abuse.
Top 10 Legal Eagle: personal injury law
Mr. Krasin, like others at his firm, isn’t afraid to take on complex cases that have been rejected by other attorneys. One such case, Hagerman vs. Home Depot, is one of Krasin’s proudest victories, and resulted in a $10 million settlement for his client.
The plaintiff, a 26-year-old electrician, was seriously harmed while working at a Home Depot while assisting B&G Building Services. Home Depot further complicated the case by filing a third party claim against B&G companies for contractual indemnification. Undeterred, Krasin took legal action against Home Depot and B&G Building Services under labor law and industrial codes, and after seven years of litigation, finally obtained just compensation for his client, who had been labeled permanently disabled by the Workers Compensation Board. His client had endured six years of medical treatments and various surgeries to address his physical injuries. After intense mediation, Mr. Krasin was able to procure $10 million on behalf of his client, most of which was paid through a structured settlement.
Advocating for the rights of workplace injury victims is just one of the many passions held by attorneys at Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, whose origins began more than 60 years ago.
Over the past several decades, Mr. Krasin and his colleagues have garnered attention as one of the most accomplished law firms in New York, working in litigation arising from premises liability, motor vehicle accidents, medical negligence, and criminal defense law, among other areas.
