$1,850,000 – Motor Vehicle Collision – Neck Injury
Plaintiff, a 37 year-old male, was operating his motor vehicle at/near the southbound Triborough Bridge Toll Plaza when his vehicle was rear-ended by the defendants van. Plaintiff’s vehicle was at a complete stop at the time of the collision. Plaintiff went to the emergency room the following day with complaints of neck and back pain, and began a course of physical therapy and conservative care. Plaintiff eventually underwent surgery to his neck. Plaintiff was not working at the time of the collision.
Defendants claimed plaintiff’s injuries were not caused by the collision and were in fact degenerative in nature.
Judd F. Kleeger, Partner, settled this matter during discovery for $1,850,000.
