Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP Wins Woman $4.79M Verdict

By WRSH on November 1, 2018 - Comments off

Something as mundane as crossing the street can drastically alter a person’s life.

That’s what happened to a 46-year-old Brooklyn woman who was hit by a car while crossing Lawrence Avenue. What’s most disconcerting about the incident is the fact she was hit by someone whose job was to protect her.

An NYPD squad car was speeding the wrong way down a one-way street when it hit the woman, resulting in herniated discs in her neck and back. Since the accident, she has had to endure two fusion surgeries and lost her career as a personal assistant to adults with mental and physical disabilities.

Fortunately for the woman, she was represented by Manhattan’s Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, a top law firm that has been successfully representing New York injury victims for over 50 years. The case was headed by Bryce Moses, partner and senior trial attorney.

WRSH filed a lawsuit against the City of New York and was able to win the woman a $4.79 million verdict, which breaks down as follows:

  • $1.5 million for past pain and suffering
  • $1 million for future pain and suffering
  • $540,000 for past lost earnings
  • $750,000 for future lost earnings
  • $1 million for future medical expenses
