Jury verdict on liability; motor vehicle accident
Our client was traveling down Springfield Boulevard near 136th Avenue in Queens when he was cut off by a truck and struck it in the rear. As a result, he sustained fractures to his jaw and nose, and a nerve injury of his left shoulder and arm. The insurance company refused to make an offer, claiming the accident was the fault of our client who was allegedly traveling too fast and struck the truck in the rear. The case was tried before a Queens County jury who disagreed, finding the truck driver 100 percent responsible for the accident.
Following this verdict, the appropriate compensation was secured for our client.
