$1,675,000 settlement for a woman who injured her neck in a collision with a delivery truck in Harlem

Court and County
Supreme Court, Bronx County

Accident
Our client was driving to work in her Nissan sedan, when the front of her car collided into the side of a delivery truck that was attempting to make a left turn in front of her.

Injuries
Our client was a 37 year old woman and a mother of one, who worked in sales. She injured her neck in this accident. MRI testing revealed a herniated disc in her cervical spine that was impacting her spinal cord. As a result, after physical therapy failed to relieve her pain, she ultimately underwent a one-level cervical spine fusion surgery. We claimed damages for her pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost earnings.

Settlement
The case settled prior to trial for $1,675,000.

Handling Attorneys
Firm Partners David L. Scher and Stephen J. Murphy.
