Client was a 45 year old health care worker when she was in a taxi that decided to back up off an exit by the FDR drive in New York City. The taxi collided with another vehicle and the client injured her shoulder. She had a slight rotator cuff injury and bad neck trauma. She lost a part time job that she had although she went back to work as a home health care aid. She has an arthoscopic surgery and had to undergo intensive physical therapy. The case was proceeding to trial when the defendant taxi paid out a six figure settlement. The defendants knew that if the case had gone to a jury trial there probably would have been a substantial verdict in favor of the injured party.
