$300,000 Recovery for NY Car Accident

Shoulder Injuries After Rear End Car Crash

WRSH Partner, Clifford Shapiro recently obtained a $300,000 settlement for a woman who was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Our client contended that while she was at a stop, waiting to turn into a driveway, she was struck in the rear by another car. The defendant/driver argued that our client stopped short to make the turn in the middle of the road and that she did not use her signal indicators. Despite the defendant's contention, we were able to persuade the Court in a motion that we were entitled to a summary judgment on the issue of liability. The Court agreed and our motion was granted.

As a result of the accident, our client sustained a tear of the rotator cuff in her right shoulder and was required to undergo arthroscopic surgery. The case settled for $300,000 after we rejected an offer $75,000 at mediation several months prior.
