Client Sustained Factured Tibia and a Severe Degloving Injury
Our client, a man in his 30s, was standing next to the rear of a truck while working as an assistant mover, when the defendant driver struck a middle car in the rear and propelled it into our client. Our client sustained a fractured tibia and a severe degloving injury to the calf muscle that caused profuse bleeding at the scene, and which necessitated multiple surgical interventions including fourteen (14) debridements, a muscle flap procedure, two skin grafts and an ankle fusion. Our client now walks with a severe limp and requires the use of a cane, as well as significant amounts of pain medication.
Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin partner Philip Russotti settled the case prior to trial for $4,900,000.
