On November 6th, 2017, Duyland was pushing a cart of metal at work when he was struck from behind by a forklift. It hit his back and right foot/ankle, causing him to fall forward to the ground. Initially, Duyland went to Montefiore Medical Center where he was admitted overnight while at the emergency room.
As a result of the accident, Duyland suffered injuries to his neck, lower back, knees, left shoulder, and ankles. He described his back and neck pain as throbbing and aching with stiffness. He had difficulty sitting, standing, and walking for any prolonged period of time as well as severe cramping sensations through his legs. When minimally invasive pain management therapy did not improve his injuries, Duyland underwent right ankle surgery, left shoulder surgery, and lumbar/cervical spine surgery. Duyland is 100% disabled and now walks with a single axis cane for support and cannot participate in any activities he once enjoyed, much less get through his day, without pain.
Duyland knew he needed a lawyer so he went straight to the internet to search for one. That’s where he found The Case Handler! He also checked out our show on 93.5 FM radio and knew our team was the one to call. After everything Duyland went through and would have to deal with for the rest of his life, there was no way we were going to accept the Defendant’s $150k settlement offer. With the help of our brilliant Bronx forklift accident lawyer at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, Duyland recovered the maximum policy limits of $1,000,00.00!
