Client Was Hit by Driver Exiting Driveway
Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP attorney Michael Fitzpatrick obtained a settlement for a 58-year-old man who was riding his motorcycle when he was struck by the defendant's vehicle exiting a driveway. The plaintiff suffered multiple fractures, requiring multiple surgeries. He had to undergo multiple lumbar sympathetic nerve blocks and the implantation of both a temporary and permanent spinal cord stimulator. The matter was on the trial calendar in Rockland County when it settled, one month prior to trial. Michael successfully settled this case for $991,000, the entire policy amount minus what was paid out already for property damage to the plaintiff’s motorcycle.
