Intersection Accident - Auto Accident
WRSMH Of Counsel David M. Hoffman was able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $850,000 on behalf of a 51-year-old woman from Queens. The woman was driving her vehicle and in the process of crossing an intersection with steady green traffic, when another motorist entered the intersection against a steady red traffic signal, striking her car and causing a serious collision. As a result of the collision, our client sustained serious injuries to her neck and lower back, which required surgery. During the course of the litigation, David M. Hoffman was able to win a decision from the court that the defendants were 100% responsible for the crash. The defendants argued that the woman’s injuries were not caused by this automobile incident, but instead resulted from prior accidents. David overcame this argument and was able to negotiate a settlement at a mediation in the amount of $850,000.
