Tragic Accident in Poughkeepsie

Home / Blog / Tragic Accident in Poughkeepsie

Our office represented the Estate of a young mother who was tragically struck and killed by a tow truck. Making the event even more unfortunate, the date of the accident was her youngest sons’ birthday. Our office established that our client sustained ‘pre-impact’ terror based on the testimony of the driver of the tow truck.

At mediation prior to the start of the trial, car accident attorneys Steven Gershowitz and Howard Raphaelson were able to secure a settlement of $825,000. A portion of this sum was placed into a structured settlement and will provide a lifetime income to the children of the accident victim. The anticipated payout will top $1,000,000.
