New York’s 2018 Leading Lawyers
Hach & Rose
Personal Injury, Construction Site Accidents & Motor Vehicle Accidents
Since its founding more than 15 years ago, Hach & Rose has distinguished itself as one of New York’s preeminent personal injury law firms. Founded on the simple principles of always placing the client’s needs first and aggressively pursuing the highest recovery possible, the firm sets itself apart. They have accomplished in excess of $250 million in jury verdicts and settlements with the proven ability to effectively advocate on behalf of their clients.
Hach & Rose has the resources to level the playing field against the largest corporations and insurance companies to fight the claims of injured victims. While it is impossible to restore one’s health, Hach & Rose ensures it will never compromise the justice each client deserves. Senior Partner Michael Rose explains, “regardless of the case value, if we commit to taking on a case the efforts are always the same.” The firm’s elite team of attorneys have embraced the concept of maximizing recovery and the methods required to do so.
“Each of our cases is prepared with the assumption it will ultimately resolve in the courtroom. Defendants understand this and that places us in the best position to achieve remarkable recoveries,” notes Managing Partner Gregory Hach. “Some of our most notable results have been achieved after a client, frustrated by the legal process, hired our firm to fight for them. One client that had been pressured by a previous attorney to settle for less than $100,000 recovered over $2 million after retaining Hach & Rose. An injured construction worker told us that his attorney recommended a $60,000 settlement. We obtained a $2 million settlement.” Such successes are bittersweet explains Hach, “it’s satisfying to know the client achieving the greater recovery will have a better life, but for every client this describes, there are countless others taking the lower settlement amount. That is tough to swallow.”
Hach’s demonstrated empathy towards his clients roots from his significant involvement with labor unions. Possessing firsthand knowledge of the work performed by many union members, he frequently lectures regarding various topics affecting members, including jobsite safety.
The firm’s success has been recognized both in and out of the courtroom. Attorneys at the firm have been recognized by SuperLawyers™, AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®, and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®. Results include:
- $13M jury verdict for a man who fell from a ladder
- $12.8M jury verdict for a worker injured by negligent construction work
- $8M jury verdict for a woman injured on a motorcycle
- $6M jury verdict for an injured hospital worker
- $2.2M jury verdict for auto accident victim
“I am extraordinarily proud of the jury verdicts our firm has achieved,” remarks Rose. “The seven and eight-figure results are just as important to us as the six-figure results.” The firm recently obtained a $225,000 jury verdict after a one-day trial for a person injured in an automobile accident. There was a $25,000 offer to settle prior to trial. Rose reflects, “a result 10 times better than the offer is what sustains our reputation—we’ll never accept less than the full compensation each client is due.”
