Stony Point New Yorkers know how dangerous Route 9W can be when drivers coming in the opposite direction are texting. Our 56-year-old client’s fears became reality when she was Southbound on 9W heading to Congers and a 17-year-old Northbound distracted driver crossed over and hit her car head-on. Due to the crash our client required surgery to her knee and low back. She also suffered a concussion that resulted in her being unable to return to her job as an emergency room nurse. After being offered only $100,000 by Allstate, the insurance company for the car, we asked a jury to hold the distracted driver accountable. The Rockland jury issued a verdict totaling $1,220,000. The case was tried by Trial Attorney Michael Feldman.
