Our client, a Dutchess County nurse, retained us 4 ½ years post accident. She had originally retained another attorney, who had recommended she accept a $35,000 offer. We took over the case, brought it to trial, and obtained a $1,000,000 offer during jury selection. After exiting Interstate 84 in Fishkill, N.Y. our client was sideswiped by a vehicle that was changing lanes. She sustained injuries to her neck and back as well as a rotator cuff tear. Our client underwent two complete discectomies , an interbody fusion and application of an interbody cage. Both our expert and the defense’s expert agreed that her surgeries stemmed from injuries sustained in the automobile crash.
