While traveling on Route 17 In Sullivan County, a distracted driver smashed into the rear of a car slowing for traffic. The force was so hard the car that was hit in the rear was pushed into the guardrail and flipped. The driver was ejected and killed. Initially, the family went to a local Pine Bush lawyer who does not specialize in injury cases. After realizing the case too was too big for him, the Pine Bush lawyer asked Finkelstein & Partners to help. We filed the necessary paperwork to create an estate and started a lawsuit. The case was eventually settled for all of the available insurance, which was unfortunately only $100,000. The case was handled by Managing Attorney David Akerib.
