WRSMH attorney Konstantin Burshteyn secured an $1,500,000 settlement for our client, who was a backseat passenger in a car that was sideswiped by a slow-moving vehicle that was traveling to his left on a New York City street. The impact caused our client to sustain injuries to his right shoulder and neck, requiring surgical intervention. Defendants contested the case by claiming that the driver of our client’s car was responsible for the accident by switching lanes and that our client’s injuries were limited since he returned to work full-time following the accident and did not have lost wages.
Konstantin was able to resolve the case before the conclusion of discovery at a private mediation.
The case was referred to WRSMH by a smaller NYC personal injury firm.
