Our client was driving to work on the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx. As he was driving, a large box truck suddenly rear-ended his vehicle. The truck was traveling over 55 miles per hour at the time of the impact.
As a result of the collision, our client sustained severe injuries and was required to undergo multiple surgeries, including two lumbar spinal surgeries, a cervical spine surgery, and left shoulder arthroscopic surgery.
Schulman Blitz, LLP commenced an action against the driver and owner of the truck that rear-ended our client. We deposed the defendant-driver who admitted that he took his eyes off the road before rear-ending our client’s vehicle. At the close of discovery, Justin Blitz, Esq. settled the case for $457,500.
