Due to his trial successes Kyle was admitted into the Million-Dollar and Multi-Million-Dollar Advocates Forum, which recognizes those attorneys who have recovered over $1 million and $3 million dollars on behalf of their clients.
At only 25 years old and fresh out of law school Kyle was trying the first case of his career in Manhattan Supreme Court where he achieved a maximum jury verdict of $100,000.00 on behalf of a car accident victim. This first victory would set the bar high for a near perfect trial record of over 75 jury verdicts in all five boroughs in cases ranging from medical malpractice, wrongful death, construction accidents, slip and falls, bus collisions, car accidents, wrongful arrest and assault & battery.
By his 30th birthday Kyle returned his first medical malpractice verdict of over one million dollars for a client who suffered near fatal injuries as a result of the malpractice of an orthopedic surgeon. At the close of the nearly month long trial in Brooklyn Supreme Court the jury awarded a sum of $1,691,385.00, which was recognized as one of the highest verdicts for a medical malpractice action involving surgical errors and was featured in the New York Law Journal’s November 2014 “Medical Malpractice Verdicts & Settlements Hall of Fame.”
At age 34 Kyle returned his first verdict in excess of three million dollars for a 35-year old man left permanently disabled from a failed bilateral laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. The plaintiff required two additional open hernia surgeries and was left with permanent ilioinguinal and genitofemoral nerve damage of the groin. After a two-week trial in New York County Supreme Court against a top New York City defense firm the jury returned a verdict of $3,037,500.00, the largest of Kyle’s career to date. This verdict was recognized as one of the Top 10 Medical Malpractice Verdicts in New York County for 2017.
By age 35 Kyle would obtain his largest settlement ever following a nearly three-week long medical malpractice trial in Bronx Supreme Court for a combined $6,100,000.00 This case involved a negligently performed “emergency” hemorrhoid surgery at a major Bronx Hospital, resulting in a severe infection, abscess and fistula, which was a straw-like connection from the client’s rectum to an opening on his buttocks. The defendants, who refused to offer any money at the beginning of the trial, ended up settling for over six million dollars following Kyle’s cross-examination of the defendant doctors. This was the highest recovery of Kyle’s career to date.
