Our client, a Rockland County motorcyclist, was on his way to a work appointment in Ramsey, New Jersey when he was seriously hurt in a motorcycle crash. Another driver switched lanes without looking and crashed into his motorcycle. Our client was removed from the scene by ambulance. He underwent emergency surgery on his ankle, which was shattered in the crash. He also sustained serious lacerations that required stitches and suffered from painful road rash. Other issues, including wound infections, required further surgery. 18 months post accident he had a picc line inserted to deliver antibiotics to his wounds which still were not healing. Prior to the crash our client was an avid hiker, unfortunately his injuries dramatically curtailed his ability to continue and enjoy his favorite recreational activities. His injuries are permanent and will probably cause him pain for the rest of his life, getting worse as he ages. His Finkelstein and Partner’s attorneys assisted him in filing a workers’ compensation claim and were able to successfully settle his case before trial at arbitration.
