Motor Vehicle Accident
WRSH partner Joseph Stoduto was able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $750,000 on behalf of our client, a 60-year-old woman from Kings County. The woman was driving along a local roadway in Brooklyn when a work van crossed over a double yellow line and struck her, causing a serious collision. As a result of the accident, our client suffered injuries to her knee and shoulder that required surgery. The defendant driver claimed to have suffered a medical emergency, causing him to faint while driving. The defendants’ lawyers attempted to get our client’s case dismissed on the grounds that the collision was not due to any negligence in light of the defendant driver’s unexpected medical situation. Joseph was able to get the court to deny the defendants’ motion to dismiss the case. Prior to trial, Joseph was able to settle the case for the amount of $750,000.
