A Landmark Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness in Recovering Compensation for Accident Victims
When our client was rendered paraplegic following a car accident in which she was a passenger, we did not stop at pursuing compensation against the driver. We worked with engineers and accident reconstructionists to investigate the road on which the accident occurred.
Our analysis revealed that the accident occurred because the city of New York had failed to post a warning sign for an abutment on the West Side Highway. Our pursuit of compensation against the city resulted in a $14.3 million financial recovery for our paralyzed client.
