“Adam, Matt, and the whole team are wonderful! They took good care of me and they were so on point. They kept me informed about my case and I didn’t worry about a thing.”
– Benji from Kearny, NJ
$33,000.00 Settlement (Maximum Limits + UIM Coverage)
On July 7th, 2018, Benji was in a vehicle that was double-parked near the intersection of East Gun Hill Road and Paulding Avenue in the Bronx. While Benji was sitting in the front passenger’s seat of the car, there was another vehicle behind him that turned left onto the same street Benji was on and failed to see the parked car. With no time to stop, the vehicle smashed into the driver’s side rear! After the accident, Benji went to the emergency department at Montefiore Medical Center for evaluation and was released home within 24 hours.
As a result of the accident, Benji sustained neck, left shoulder, and lower back injuries. He described his pains as a combination of aching, stiffness, and dullness. He also felt a pins and needles sensation in the left arm. Since Benji only found relief when lying down, he was unable to go back to work. After grueling hours of physical therapy 3-5 days per week, he was able to resume work. His symptoms did improve with months of therapy, however, he still experiences intermittent pain with certain activities to this day, such as lifting his child.
Thankfully, through word-of-mouth, Benji was told to contact The Case Handler team. We received a $10,000 initial offer from the Defendant’s insurance company to settle Benji’s bodily injury claim, but we knew we could do better! We kept him informed and on track with his case, and in his words, we took care of him. With the help of our Bronx double parked accident lawyers, we recovered the maximum $25,000.00 policy limits, plus an additional $8,000.00 through his UIM coverage!
The Result: $33,000.00 Settlement (Maximum Limits + UIM Coverage)
Benji’s story is just another example of the importance of having uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UIM/UM). That and a good lawyer! For an accident that involved parking illegally and one that did not require any serious surgeries or procedures, $10,000 may sound like a great deal. Benji could have taken it and run. Thanks to word-of-mouth and the help of our personal injury team at PPID, Benji recovered over 3 times the amount the insurance company wanted to pay. If you or a loved one is ever injured like Benji, contact the diligent Bronx double-parked accident lawyer that you believe will take “good care” of you.
