Our client was a passenger in a car involved in a multi-vehicle collision. The crash occurred on the Grand Central Parkway near a construction site. A Nassau County police vehicle was involved. The car our client was in rear-ended another vehicle, but the car that caused the accident had sped away and the driver was uninsured. Our client suffered a fracture of the cervical spine, a fracture of the hand that required surgery, and several other injuries. We were able to obtain a significant 6-figure settlement by demonstrating the severity of the injuries not withstanding age.
