$2 Million Recovery for Motor Vehicle Accident

Flatbed Tractor Trailer Backed Into Minibus

Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro and Halperin partner, Cliff Shapiro, obtained a recovery for a 32-year-old male who was in the course of his employment with Access-A-Ride. Our client was stopped at a red light when defendants' motor vehicle, a flatbed tractor trailer, backed into the minibus with such impact that the entire bus was pushed to the side. As a result of the accident, our client sustained numerous injuries, including but not limited to the necessity to undergo a cervical discectomy and cervical fusion at C4-C5, C5-C6.

We moved for, and were granted Summary Judgment on liability. A Mediation was held and we demanded $4.5 million to settle this case; defendants offered $225,000. Needless to say, we did not accept their offer.

Thereafter negotiations ensued and, prior to trial, Cliff was able to procure a $2,000,000 offer of settlement, which the client accepted.
