Bronx Pedestrian Hit-and-Run Lawyers: Samara

I’m very pleased with the legal representation I received! Matthew, Adam, and Sandra were incredibly helpful, respectful, and responsive in their communication. I must also mention how impressed I was by how quickly I received my settlement check!

- Samara from Bronx, NY



What Happened?

On August 31, 2023, Samara was crossing the street, with the walk signal on, at the intersection of East Fordham Road and Bainbridge Avenue in the Bronx. Suddenly, a vehicle turned left onto Bainbridge Avenue, carelessly sideswiping her right hand, causing her to spill her coffee, and then running over her right foot with the rear tire. Shockingly, instead of stopping to check on Samara, the driver fled the scene, leaving her injured and bewildered. Samara was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital via ambulance, where she underwent thorough evaluation and treatment before being discharged later that day.

The aftermath of the accident left Samara with injuries to her right hand and right foot. She suffered from persistent pain in the right hand and wrist, impeding her ability to write and grasp items, crucial tasks for a right-handed individual. Samara also experienced constant pain, swelling, weakness, and instability in her right ankle that worsened with weight-bearing activities and prolonged standing or walking. These injuries severely hindered her daily activities, making tasks involving bending, twisting, turning, and squatting exceedingly difficult. When conservative treatment failed to improve her injuries, Samara underwent a pain management injection for her wrist and ultimately required surgeries for her right ankle (January 2024), and right hand (February 2024) to address De Quervain tenosynovitis. 

Prompted by her mother’s recommendation, Samara wasted no time in seeking legal assistance from The Case Handler lawyers on the very day of her accident. Despite the driver’s attempt to evade responsibility by fleeing the scene, Samara managed to get the license plate number. With the unwavering support of our esteemed Bronx pedestrian hit-and-run lawyers, we tracked down the negligent driver accountable for Samara’s injuries. Ensuring that all of her medical expenses were covered, we fought tirelessly on her behalf and secured a $95,000.00 settlement from the driver’s insurance company in less than seven months!
