Stephen David has been practicing personal injury law for nearly 40 years.
He has successfully tried or settled over a thousand cases resulting in
millions of dollars for his clients.
In his career spanning a generation, Mr. David has handled many interesting
and noteworthy cases, including a settlement in excess of $1 million for
a client in an auto accident whose recovery was so remarkable it was not
apparent from looking at him that he was ever injured; a settlement during
a jury trial for the estate of a client who was killed while crossing
a highway, against the bar who had invited her to park on the opposite
side of the highway; a federal court victory against a major insurance
company which had claimed his client was not entitled to benefits of $500,000
because of no less than three coverage exclusions in his client's
policy; and a settlement against a railroad in a Wrongful Death case for
the estate of a disabled client whose wheelchair became caught in the
tracks at a crossing, causing him to be struck and killed by an oncoming train.
He has also handled some unusual, if not unique cases, such as defeating
a summary judgment motion and settling a claim for a client who testified
that she fell and was injured while running from a UFO, and a jury verdict
in favor of a client who was accused of spitting on the floor of a department
store and was injured while resisting arrest by the store's security guards.
Mr. David serves as Special Counsel to Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer &
Kupersmith. He is licensed to practice before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania,
the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania,
and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
