2012_Woman_Sitting_Beside_Car_iStock_000020361024_ExtraSmallThe plaintiff, a resident of Ossining, in Westchester, New York, was the driver of her own vehicle traveling eastbound on Croton Avenue in Ossining, New York in 2013.  She had stopped at a red light when she was struck from the rear by the defendant’s vehicle. The plaintiff had her 9 year old daughter and 15 year old niece in the vehicle while the accident happened.  There was obvious physical damage to both vehicles visible to the naked eye.

Our client, the injured plaintiff, did not feel any immediate pain from it.  However pain in her back increased throughout the night due to this unfortunate incident.  Approximately 6 days after the accident, the plaintiff started physical therapy in Sleepy Hollow to treat her pain and the dysfunction of her thoracic and lumbar spine.  She described the pain as a burning sensation at a consistent level of 8 on a scale of 1 to 10.  As the physical therapy was not alleviating the pain, she began acupuncture.  The acupuncture treatment succeeded in reducing the pain but did not render the injured plaintiff pain-free. Despite all of the medical treatment, physical therapy and acupuncture sessions our client endured, she continued to feel pain in her back as a result of the car accident.

As soon as we were hired, we pressed our claim for money damages for our client to compensate her for her pain and suffering, which continues to the present day.  We successfully convinced the insurance company for the offending driver that in the past, jury verdicts for similar back injuries, corroborated by objective medical testing, often exceeding $100,000.  After conducting their own investigation, and reviewing our injured client’s medical treatment, we obtained a settlement for our client.  Not only was the client happy with the amount of the settlement, but she was relieved that we were able to settle the claim within a year of the car crash.

The plaintiffs, residents of Yonkers, New York, were traveling in an automobile northbound on Interstate 684 in winter when their vehicle collided with another vehicle traveling northbound.  Icy pavement may have been a contributing factor causing the accident.  Plaintiffs felt great pain and required transportation from the accident scene to Northern Westchester Hospital for Emergency Room treatment.  Subsequently, the plaintiffs received orthopedic and neurologic care and received physical therapy to assist in their recovery.

As soon as we filed the lawsuit, the insurance company initiated settlement discussions, and we obtained a cash settlement for both clients.  This favorable resolution of the case provided monetary compensation to both victims without having to proceed to trial.
