On November 20th, 2021, Simon was driving southbound on New York State Route 17A near Quarry Road in the Town of Goshen, New York. He slowed down to a stop while preparing to turn left into an auto service center. The vehicle behind him was not paying enough attention and crashed into the rear of Simon’s car! After the accident, Simon felt neck pain and back pain. He went to urgent care where he was evaluated, treated, and released home with pain medication.
Simon injured his neck and back due to the accident. He described the worst area of pain in his mid and lower back, which was aching and sharp. He suffered multiple disc herniations and disc bulging in his spine. He was required to attend therapy and later underwent pain management injections. Injuries to Simon’s lumbar spine required microdiscectomy (a surgical procedure that involves removing a small portion of a herniated disc to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves), mechanical decompression, nucleoplasty, and annuloplasty on October 10, 2022. He was totally incapacitated from work for 5 months after the accident.
Simon has listened to Adam Handler on 93.5 FM radio for years and for him, there is no other attorney he could go to after all of the incredible results he’s heard about. Soon after his accident, he contacted our personal injury team for legal representation. With the help of our top Goshen, NY car accident lawyer at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, Simon was granted summary judgment which is a legal decision made by a judge based on presented evidence our team presented that resulted in a resolution without going to trial against the Defendant!
