White Oak Office
In 2016, Pribanic & Pribanic won a settlement against General Motors Company (G.M.) for the wife of James Yingling, who was killed when he lost control of his Ion compact sedan on a road near his home in Bedford County, Pa. The suit charged that the crash was caused by an ignition defect that shut off the car’s engine and disabled its airbags [R].
This bellwether litigation was “one of the final phases of G.M.’s efforts to move past its ignition switch crisis, which started in 2014 when the company admitted that for a decade it had failed to disclose the defective switch in millions of small cars.” [R]
Veterans Affairs (U.S. Gov)
In 2012, a federal judge awarded nearly $5.3 million to the family of a woman who died of a brain aneurysm following repeated visits to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Altoona, Pa. Most of the financial award is to cover the expenses for the care of her disabled son, for whom she used to provide care. Victor Pribanic, who represented the plaintiffs, presented to the court a life-care planner who estimated the annual cost for the son’s care. [R]
Ernst & Young
Pribanic & Pribanic attorneys Victor Pribanic & Vincent Coppola won a high-stakes lawsuit targeting the Pittsburgh accounting firm Ernst & Young, which their client, Thomas Reilly, blamed for the bankruptcy of four companies involved or connected with development of what is now Seven Fields Borough.
