Brett L. Kuller is a personal injury trial attorney. His mission is to help catastrophically injured clients obtain the compensation they are entitled to. He focuses on construction site accident, motor vehicle accident, police misconduct, and trip and fall cases. He consistently obtains outstanding results for his clients and has been named a Super Lawyers Rising Star every year since 2017. Selection to Super Lawyers involves peer nomination, independent review, and only 2.5% of attorneys in New York are named Super Lawyers Rising Stars. Mr. Kuller has also been named to the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 list for 2019 and 2020.
Brett obtains maximum recovery for his client’s because he will take the case to trial if the insurance company refuses to pay fair compensation. Most lawyers don’t do trials; Brett became a lawyer because he wanted to conduct trials. He has obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for his clients and several of Brett’s cases have been reported in the New York Law Journal’s top verdicts and settlements.
Brett obtained a $2,225,000 settlement during trial in a case against the New York City Police Department involving excessive force claims. He obtained a $1,225,000 settlement during trial in a case where his client was injured by a bus operated by the New York City Transit Authority. In one case, the insurance company offered $16,000 to settle the case; the client rejected the offer, and the jury returned a verdict of $493,000. In another case, the insurance company refused to offer one penny before trial since the client had a pre-existing injury to her back. Brett was able to prove that the defendant’s negligence made the client’s pre-existing back condition much worse, and the insurance company paid $590,000 to settle during trial.press
