Cliff Shapiro and Noah Katz, attorneys with Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, obtained a recovery in the amount of $1,700,000.00 on behalf of a client involved in an automobile accident. Our client was cut off by the defendant, and in the process of doing so, the defendant struck the passenger side of our client’s vehicle. Noah obtained summary judgment at the close of discovery, which strengthened the case. Our client sustained injuries to his lower back that resulted in one surgery. He missed a few months of work before returning. The defendants argued that the plaintiff had a history of accidents with injuries to his lower back and that as recently as one month before the subject accident, he was actively treating for lower back pain. Cliff and Noah showed that the symptoms and feeling of pain were different after the subject accident by relying upon medical evidence. Ultimately, the case resolved one year before trial.
