$160,000 Recovery in NY Bus Accident

Bus Accident - Motor Vehicle Accident.

Our client, a 43 year old artist, was hit by a school bus while walking her child to school in Queens. As a result of the accident, she was taken to the hospital by ambulance. After two years of conservative treatment, she underwent an arthroscopic shoulder surgery. She contended she could no longer do tile work, which was her specialty.

The defendants contended that our client was only treated for cuts on her elbow at the hospital and made no complaints of shoulder pain until over two weeks after the accident. They further contended that the MRI showed our client had a congenital shoulder condition which necessitated the surgery.

Through a thorough investigation, the firm was able to determine that the defendant's orthopedic expert had his license suspended for performing fraudulent independent medical examinations. Thus, even though the plaintiff's own physicians found the congenital defect on the MRI and during surgery, the defendant's chose to settle the case at mediation rather than risking a trial. Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP successfully mediated the case and settled it for $160,000.
