When an insurance company offered a minimal settlement to a car accident victim that sustained an elbow injury requiring surgery, she turned to our firm for assistance.
Our client injured her elbow after being struck by a car and required arthroscopic surgery to repair the damage. The insurance company argued that our client’s injuries were so minor that the case would be dismissed before trial.
The motion to dismiss was denied and the case proceeded to trial at the Suffolk County Supreme Court. Claiming they would certainly prevail, the insurance company offered a pedestrian settlement of only a few thousand dollars. With the council of personal injury attorney Ben Katz, our client rejected the offer and our firm diligently went to work. After a tireless pursuit of justice for our client, attorney Ben Katz presented a compelling argument, successfully obtaining a trial verdict of $175,000 for our deserving client.
