On October 4th, 2018, Fitzroy was driving for Uber on Fulton Street in Brooklyn, New York. While fully stopped in traffic near the intersection of Fulton Street and Tomkins Avenue, an MTA bus made a right turn from Tomkins Avenue onto Fulton Street and was way too close to Fitzroy’s vehicle. The bus slammed into the rear of Fitzroy! The bus driver later told the police that the accident was Fitzroy’s fault because Fitzroy tried to pass the bus on the right while he was turning the bus. He later went to the emergency room at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where he was evaluated, treated, and discharged home with prescriptions for pain medications.
Fitzroy injured his neck and lower back as a result of the accident. He complained of constant neck pain that felt worse with neck motion and low back pain that was aggravated by bending. For several weeks after the accident, he also experienced post-traumatic headaches. He attended months of physical therapy. When minimally invasive pain management failed to improve his injuries, he was required to undergo neck surgery (Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion / ACDF) on February 12th, 2020, and lower back laminectomy surgery on October 23rd, 2020. Due to his injuries, he became 100% disabled and was unable to continue working.
Years ago, Fitzroy first heard about Adam Handler, The Case Handler, on the radio and saved his number. After his accident, Fitzroy knew exactly who he wanted to represent him and called Adam a few days soon after the incident. While the bus driver claimed that Fitzroy caused the accident, our team successfully retrieved photos and videos from inside the MTA bus to prove that the bus driver was lying. With the help of our top Brooklyn bus accident lawyer at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, Fitzroy recovered life-changing money and the ability to never have to work again!
