Our firm secured a settlement 5-times larger than the defendant’s original offer for a New Yorker who suffered soft tissue injuries during a car accident.
Trial attorney Jason Krakower recently received a favorable result in a matter pending in New York County Supreme Court. Our client had been struck by a motor vehicle. She sustained soft tissue injuries that were treated with conservative care for several months. Three years after the accident our client developed a vascular condition in her leg that was struck at the time of the accident. The insurance carrier for the defendant refused to acknowledge that the vascular injury was caused by the accident due to the long delay in diagnosis and treatment.
During the trial, Krakower was able to establish that the injury was related to the accident through medical testimony and documentation. Prior to the jury returning a verdict, the matter was settled for $45,000. Before the start of the trial, the defendant was only offering $7,500. Jason’s excellent courtroom skills allowed our client to obtain an award over five times larger than the pretrial offer!
