Mario C. Palermo
The son of a New York City police officer, Mario Palermo got into injury law to help the underdog achieve justice. For the last 19 years, Mario has dedicated his career to recovering full and fair compensation for injury victims and their families.
Mr. Palermo was thrust into the national legal spotlight with his early handling of a defective airbag case that involved the death of a 48-year-old mother. Ford Motor Company attempted to argue that the mother’s death was due to her “brittle neck”. The case settled for $1,500,000 after Mr. Palermo successfully used the vehicle’s “black box” technology to prove the airbag was defective. This case was featured prominently in the national news as one of the first successful uses of vehicle “black box” technology to prove an auto manufacturer’s negligence.
