On October 10, 2016, Michael was on his way to work when he stopped at a red light near the RFK Triborough Bridge. While waiting for the light to turn green to proceed across the bridge, Michael was rear-ended by another vehicle. The car that crashed into Michael did not exchange contact information with him and drove off before the police arrived. Not wanting to be stuck with a hefty ambulance bill, Michael refused ambulance transportation to the hospital and took himself to the emergency room at Montefiore Medical Center that same day. As a result of the hit-and-run accident, Michael injured his neck, back, and left shoulder (partial thickness rotator cuff tear). Due to these injuries, Michael was not able to resume work. After conservative treatment (physical therapy and Cortisone injections) did not improve Michael’s left shoulder after several months, he underwent a left shoulder arthroscopy (surgical procedure).
For the past 12 years, Michael has listened to Adam Handler on the radio but hoped he would never need to call him. Without a second thought, Michael knew exactly who to contact after his unfortunate hit-and-run accident.
With The Case Handler by his side, the hit-and-run vehicle was identified. Adam Handler won the maximum policy limits from the Defendant’s insurance company, helped Michael obtain additional compensation through his own insurance (underinsured motorist coverage), AND is still receiving compensation for all of his lost time at work due to the accident!
