$1.3 Million Recovery - Passenger Injured in Speeding Car Accident in New York

Severe Injuries to the Right, Dominant Arm

Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin Partner, Mitchell Kahn, obtained a settlement for $1.3 Million for an 18 year old client who was a passenger in a vehicle that sped around a curve too quickly, causing the driver to lose control and side swipe a utility pole. The plaintiff was a rear seat passenger and was ejected from his seat. The plaintiff contended that he suffered severe injuries to the right, dominant arm, which included injuries to the subclavian artery that affected the shoulder, right scapula and right clavicle fractures, brachial plexus injuries and compartment syndrome. The plaintiff was caused to undergo several surgical procedures. The plaintiff maintained that he has no use of the arm and that the condition is permanent. The plaintiff contended that he has great difficulties with everyday activities otherwise taken for granted such as dressing.

The plaintiff also suffered facial injuries, including a left orbital fracture that required surgery.

The defendant had $300,000 in primary coverage and a $1,000,000 umbrella. Mitch settled the case prior to trial for the full amount of the policy limits.
