March 27th, 2020 Results

A 70 year old driver was hit in the rear in Westchester County. She suffered a low back injury requiring surgery, as well as incontinence. The defendants disputed both liability and damages claiming the accident was caused by a ‘phantom’ driver which forced their car into our client’s vehicle before fleeing the scene. They also claimed that the injuries were pre-existing and age-related. After completion of discovery proceedings, the case settled before trial.
