$550,000 Auto Accident

September 29th, 2011 Results,Uncategorized

Award against the State of New York in the Court of Claims at White Plains for a car accident. Our client, in her mid-50s, was getting out of her car in a parking lot. A State employee backed out of the adjoining space, causing the driver’s door to close forcefully and pinning the woman’s knees against the doorframe. She suffered significant bilateral injuries. The State unsuccessfully argued that the accident was our client’s fault and that her injuries were degenerative and pre-existing.
