Michelle Laskin has practiced as a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney for over 27 years. Michelle is one of the leading female attorneys in her profession. Ms. Laskin has her own firm, Laskin Law PC, and throughout her career she has obtained settlements or verdicts of over $75 million.
In 1994, Michelle represented the parents of a baby who was born with a congenital heart disease. Because of the insurance industry’s 24 hour newborn hospital stay policy, the heart defect was not diagnosed and the baby died from this treatable defect. Along with the baby’s parents, Michelle worked to lobby the New York State Assembly and the mandatory 48 hour hospital stay became law.
In 2001, Michelle obtained the 10th largest verdict for a woman who lost her leg after being struck by a drunken driver. This case also involved the first dram shop action against a national pharmacy chain for selling beer. The pharmacy chain settled the claim for a substantial sum.
In 2016, Ms. Laskin settled a road design case with The City of New York for $2.5 million. Her client was struck by a driver drag racing on a City street. Due to Michelle’s exhaustive investigation, it was revealed that the roadway had been ranked amongst the top 10 most dangerous roads thereby leading to this multi-million dollar settlement.
In 2017, Ms. Laskin represented a Wall Street executive who sustained head trauma as a result of being struck by a distracted driver. Ms. Laskin recovered over $1million.
