This past November, settled a client’s case for $457,500. The client suffered a significant cervical spine injury requiring a fusion surgery. He was t-boned by a car exiting Purdy’s farmer and the Fish in Somers, New York. We were able to convince the insurance carrier that our client’s pre-existing neck injury (he actually had a prior cervical fusion surgery) had nothing to do with his current complaints. We also were able to distinguish his subsequent car accidents. We were also able to locate additional insurance sources (the client had a supplemental underinsurance policy) that contributed to the settlement. In total, we were able to achieve this settlement in less than eight months from when we were retained.
