Personal Injury – Motor Vehicle Accident (2007)
Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injuries, including neck, back, chest and spine injuries, broken bones, soft tissue damage, burns and head and brain trauma. Our client was injured in a motor vehicle accident when the other driver failed to observe a yield sign. We moved for summary judgment in favor of our client on the issue of liability, which a judge granted. The defendant appealed, claiming that there was an issue of comparative negligence by our client.
On appeal, the Appellate Division, Second Department upheld the judge’s ruling in favor of our client, leaving the only issue in the case the amount of damages. The case later settled on terms favorable to our client.
