New York Truck Accident - $275,000 Recovery

New York Truck Accident Lawyers

The firm settled a case for $275,000 during opening statements. Our client was working at the Albany Housing projects, operating a farm tractor in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, when his tractor was knocked over with him on it by the defendants truck.

At the time, he was using his John Deere tractor to collect bulk trash. On the morning of the collision, the defendant's truck was dropping off an empty bulk trash container when it backed into our client's tractor which was parked at the time. Our client was treated and released the same day from the hospital. He suffered herniations to his neck and lower back, which had preexisting arthritis. Medical treatment after the accident included occasional trigger point injections and physical therapy without surgery. Subsequent medical records showed that our client complained of occasional lower back pain and occasional neck pain since the accident.
