Our client was a 47 year old school teacher from Holbrook, New York when she was rear ended by another vehicle on Route 112 in Brookhaven. As a result from the accident she sustained lumbar and cervical herniations which resulted in her getting epidural steroid injections. Prior to the settlement she underwent a fusion because of the severity of her injuries. The plaintiff was unable to take time off from work which complicated her rehabilitation. We were able to obtain a six figure settlement for the client which was due in part to our persistent in negotiation with the insurance company.
