Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP attorney Konstantin Burshteyn secured a $1.23 million settlement for our client on the eve of trial. Our client, a NYC bus operator, was crossing the street in the middle of the block when she was struck by an SUV which was backing into a parking spot. As a result of the crash, our client sustained injuries to her ankle and her neck, while aggravating a lower back injury that ultimately required surgery. It took Konstantin less than 2 years to finish discovery, obtain 100% summary judgment on liability, and place the matter on the trial calendar. Konstantin rejected numerous offers made by defendants and prepared the case for trial. The case was resolved at a conference immediately before jury selection in New York County.
