WRSH Recovers $3.3 Million for Woman Severely Injured in Manhattan Truck Accident

By WRSH on June 19, 2014 - Comments off

New York City Personal InjuryNew York attorneys Philip Russotti and Kenneth Halperin of Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP recent settled a case for $3,300,000 on behalf of a 43-year-old woman who suffered permanent injuries in a truck accident.

The injured woman was riding in the passenger seat of her sister’s car that was headed to Staten Island when the accident occurred. A semi-truck drifted into the right lane of a two lane southbound road, striking the car and causing the woman’s sister to lose control of the vehicle. The car spun into the path of the truck, resulting in a second impact.

The collision aggravated the passenger’s previous back injury and caused a rotator cuff tear, both of which would require surgical treatment. The injured woman would suffer severe pain and weakness as a result, preventing her from returning to work permanently.

Relying on physical evidence of the collision that was left on the car, such as truck rubber markings and metal indentations, as well as testimony by an accident reconstructionist and NASA scientist, the case was settled during jury selection.
