Our client was struck by a construction van that was not properly placed in park.
The van rolled backward and slammed into our client, pinning him to his vehicle. He had to be airlifted from the scene. He ultimately underwent surgery on his back.
The surgery focused on his sacroiliac joint, the source of his pain. While the surgery was labeled “minimally invasive,” we successfully argued that it had the maximum effect on our client’s life. After years of litigation in Suffolk Supreme Court, Andrew Levine and Joseph Taylor recovered $1.0 Million for our client.
This sum represented every available insurance dollar available. Throughout the litigation, the defendants said they would never pay their full policy to resolve the case. But, we refused to accept anything less and prepared the case for trial.
Our preparation worked, and on the eve of the trial, the insurance carrier relented and fully compensated our client.
