$725,000 Settlement for NY Pedestrian Accident

78-year-old Pedestrian Knockdown

WRSH Partner, Cliff Shapiro, obtained a settlement in the amount of $725,000 for a 78-year-old man who was struck by a motor vehicle. The defendant driver contended that the plaintiff ran out in front of her car and caused the accident.

As a result of the accident, the client sustained a fracture of his right tibial plateau, which required open reduction and internal fixation; a rotator cuff tear of his right shoulder, which required arthroscopic surgery; head injury with laceration and stitches; as well as a fracture of vertebrae. The plaintiff was confined to the hospital three times for a total of 18 days.

With regard to liability, Cliff claimed that the defendant driver's contention that a 78-year-old man would run out into the street in front of a car was absolutely ridiculous, and that he was confident that a jury would agree with him, after seeing and meeting our client.
