Brooklyn Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Review: S.B.

What Happened?

On July 14, 2016, S.B. was walking home from the store, carrying her groceries.  While she was crossing Wyona Street at the intersection of New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn, a vehicle failed to see her and struck the right side of our client.  S.B. had difficulty blocking her fall since she was holding items and fell directly on her knees and face.  S.B. was taken by ambulance to Kings County Hospital and underwent x-rays.  She was subsequently discharged to go home having suffered the following injuries:

  • Left foot/toe sprain
  • Facial swelling on the right side
  • Right hand/wrist tenderness and pain

The Case Handler team assisted S.B. in finding the right doctors to treat her injuries and made sure all of S.B.’s medical bills were paid through the driver’s no fault insurance.  In New York, a pedestrian’s medical bills are paid by the striking vehicle regardless of fault hence the name “no fault insurance.”

While S.B. was recovering, our team pursued both no fault and bodily injury claims to make sure S.B. was fully compensated for her injuries.

Thankfully, S.B.’s injuries resolved and she no longer needed treatment.  As a result, we could not push for additional compensation under the “permanent injury” threshold in the no-fault insurance claim.  At this point, we knew it was right to settle the case and not go to trial. Congratulations on your recovery and settling your case S.B.!
