Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP attorney Jay Wechsler recently settled an automobile accident case with the City of New York for $1,250,000. Our client was the operator of a vehicle that was rear-ended. Our client suffered injuries to his neck and shoulder, but he made an excellent recovery and only required brief stints of post-operative physical therapy.
The case was settled prior to depositions and without engaging in protracted litigation with the City of New York. Even though depositions had not taken place and discovery had just begun, Jay was able to obtain an excellent result at the early stages of the case. The case settled for $1.25 million.
