New York, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2013
New York personal injury law firm Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP is pleased to announce a $1,675,000 settlement for a 55 year old tailor from Brooklyn who hurt his lower back in a rear end car accident. The March 27, 2013 settlement came just weeks before the scheduled trial date in New York State Supreme Court, Kings County (Index Number 18171/2009).
The Brooklyn car accident occurred on Cropsey Avenue, when the car in which Plaintiff was a passenger was struck in the rear by a van owned by the Defendant. Plaintiff injured his left knee, left shoulder and lower back, and underwent surgeries to all three body parts. The low back surgery involved removing a herniated disc and fusing two vertebrae together with plates and screws. These facts were established by the police accident report, the Plaintiff's deposition testimony and various medical records that were exchanged during the case. The Defense, during settlement negotiations and through their expert medical witness reports, argued that Plaintiff's injuries existed prior to the accident. Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP claimed Plaintiff was entitled to compensation for his pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and related medical expenses.
