We recently settled a motor vehicle case for a single mother using mediation as an alternative form of dispute resolution. Our client, an Orange County resident, was traveling eastbound on Route 17M in Goshen, New York when the defendant made a left turn into the side of her vehicle. The collision resulted in our client sustaining multiple fractures. She endured several surgeries and ultimately her injuries prohibited her from doing either of her two jobs, putting her and her children in dire financial straits. By using this strategy we were able to save our client the expense and stress of preparing for and going to trial. When mediation is successful our clients are able to receive their much-needed settlements faster. Finkelstein & Partners, LLP Firm gives our clients access to all information needed to make informed decisions. In this case the client’s decision to utilize alternative dispute resolution through mediation resulted in a $1,700,000 award.
