The client in this case was injured while crossing the street at a crosswalk at night. The driver of the car did not see the victim before the impact. The victim suffered significant injuries, including orthopedic, neurological, and cognitive difficulties. After receiving extensive medical treatment, he exhausted his medical insurance benefits.
At Cohen & Riechelson, our personal injury lawyers employ a strategy of expansive investigation, by which we accumulate any and all evidence that may support our injured clients’ claims. We seek the knowledge and analysis of highly respected experts in relevant fields in order to construct the most comprehensive and compelling arguments on your behalf. This may include a medical assessment of your injuries and necessary treatment, an analysis of the circumstances that preceded the event, and a thorough investigation at the site of the incident.
In this specific case, an engineering expert was hired to conduct an analysis of the lighting conditions and overall visibility of the pedestrian in the crosswalk. Several medical experts were also retained to speak to the variety and severity of the clients’ injuries. Ultimately, our partners made a presentation directly to the insurance company and were able to secure a settlement for $2 million, which covered the costs of the clients’ medical expenses and compensated him for his injuries.
