Benjamin Tursi of Marks, O’Neill’s Philadelphia office recently secured transfer of a very serious motor vehicle accident case, where one passenger was ejected and died and another claimed permanent injuries.  After aggressively pursuing additional venue discovery and depositions, the case was transferred more than one year into the litigation out of Philadelphia to Cumberland County, a more conservative venue, following the filing of our Motion to Transfer Venue based on Forum Non Conveniens.  The Court granted our Motion only days before the mediation in this case, which provided significant leverage to the defendants to obtain a reasonable resolution prior to trial, minimizing exposure to our client.
