Steinger, Greene & Feiner Win $830K Verdict for Victim of Serious Crash with Police Officer

This was the officer’s third at-fault motor vehicle incident in less than one year.

DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA – LAW firm Steinger, Greene & Feiner represented Patricia Miley in her suit against the City of Delray Beach for a serious collision with an on-duty police vehicle driven by then Officer Michael Brown.

A Sun-Sentinel news report alleges Brown to have been en route to a burglary in progress when he drove through the intersection at Southeast 10th Street and Federal Highway without yielding for a flashing red light or using his emergency lights or sirens; his police cruiser crashing into Miley’s car.

Though the City of Delray mounted a formidable defense, the jury in this case affirmed, by way of the verdict, that the city must be held responsible for Brown’s actions.

Firm partner, Michael Steinger, says about the five-year, seemingly uphill battle, “It was a team effort and Dale Buckner and Bill Vertes did a lot of the work, along with Director of Litigation David Knight; all 3 worked hard on trial.

Miley intends on using the funds to ensure continuation of care for the injuries sustained as a result of the accident. When asked about take-aways for this case, Steinger says, “Jurors need not be afraid to right injustice and hold at-fault parties monetarily responsible when found liable for causing injury to another.”
