Our 81-year-old client was crossing Meadow Farm Road near Old Courthouse Road in New Hyde Park when he was struck by the defendant’s left-turning vehicle. As a result, he suffered a fracture of his right arm as well as bleeding in the brain that caused cognitive impairment. The insurance company claimed the accident was the fault of our client who allegedly walked in front of the vehicle that he failed to see, and they also claimed that any cognitive impairment was the result of our client’s age and not the accident. After we conducted thorough depositions of the driver and other witnesses, the insurer made an appropriate offer to compensate our client for his injuries.
Every case is different and results depend on their specific circumstances. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
