85% of people who suffer a concussion make a full and complete recovery. The other 15% are often called the miserable minority. Unfortunately our client makes up part of the 15% who never fully recover from a concussion after being in a car crash with a distracted driver. After a brief loss of consciousness after the distracted driver hit our client in the rear on Route 9 in Putnam County, he began having memory problems. Gradually, our client started to demonstrate mood and behavioral changes too. His marriage started suffering. His co-workers were helping him more than ever at his job. Everyone saw a major change in his personality and the injury was confirmed by our expert neuropsychologist. The insurance company defense was that our client was a liar, cheat and a fraud. However, the insurance company must not have truly believed in their defense because right before jury selection they offered $500,000 to settle. The case was handled by Managing Attorney David Gross, Trial Partner Ron Rosenkranz and Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein.
