$950,000.00 for Long Island construction worker injured in car accident

We obtained a $950,000.00 settlement after jury selection in Supreme Court, Nassau County. Our client, a self-employed construction worker, sustained a back injury requiring surgery and lost income. Even before jury selection began, we obtained a court-order finding the other driver to be 100% at fault in causing the accident. The trial was only about the amount of compensation for our injured client. We had our experts – the treating neuro-surgeon and an economist – lined up to testify when the case settled for $950,000.00 (the bulk of the other driver’s insurance policy).
