On January 25th, 2018, there was a driver of a van backing into a parking space in Brooklyn when all of a sudden the driver heard a noise and got out of the vehicle to see what had happened. When the driver got out, he realized that he hit Chris and pinned him against another van parked behind him! Chris stepped off the curb near Gates Avenue and Tompkins Avenue when the van reversed into him. Chris felt dazed and briefly remembered “seeing stars” right after getting hit. He was taken by ambulance to a Brooklyn hospital for evaluation, treatment, and sent home with medication.
As a result of the accident, Chris suffered injuries to his right knee, neck, lower back, left shoulder, and left hand. He suffered multiple disc herniations and bulges in his neck and lower back. Additionally, Chris strained/sprained his left shoulder and left hand when he was hit. He received extensive care that included chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, acupuncture therapy, and additional care. Despite treatment, Chris was required to have surgery under general anesthesia to repair his right knee tear on June 20th, 2018. He was unable to work for approximately four weeks.
Chris was listening to the radio when he heard Adam Handler! He called our team and decided to make his one chance for financial compensation count by choosing The Case Handler team. Unfortunately, Chris had a prior accident in 2006 that also required him to get right knee surgery. Prior accidents with similar injuries is NOT a case most lawyers would want to take, but The Case Handler lawyers are NOT like most lawyers. With the help of our experienced Brooklyn injured pedestrian lawyer at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, we successfully recovered a $150,000.00 settlement for Chris!
