On November 19, 2017, Lee was a passenger in his brother’s car on Old County Road in Nassau County. His brother (the driver) slowed down to prepare to make a left turn at the intersection of Zeckendorf Boulevard. As the light turned yellow, Lee’s car started to make the turn and another vehicle blew a red light and crashed into the passenger side of Lee’s vehicle! As a result, the vehicle Lee was in collided into a traffic light pole and caused damage to both the car and the control box. The other driver was driving at an excessive rate of speed, failed to yield the right of way, and was blatantly negligent to traffic safety laws. Consequently, Lee was knocked unconsciousness and sustained other serious injuries. Lee was transported by ambulance to Winthrop Hospital for evaluation.
As a result of the accident, he suffered injuries to his shoulder, neck, back and knee. Lee was hospitalized for several days, was bedridden for a week and confined to his house for another two weeks. He suffered from post-traumatic headaches, vertigo, and ongoing pain to all afflicted areas. Lee dislocated and tore a muscle in his right shoulder. He also tore his lateral meniscus in his left leg which would require him to consider surgery. He had multiple disc herniations in both his mid and lower back. Lee felt constant pain, deformity, tenderness, weakness, restriction of motion and loss of use within the affected areas.
Lee hired another attorney initially. Feeling unsatisfied with his choice, he turned to a person he trusted most (his cousin) and asked for a referral. Lee’s cousin told him all about Adam Handler. Lee picked up the phone and called The Case Handler team! Lee said that he instantly got a good vibe from Adam and decided he was the right lawyer for the case. With the help of The Case Handler team, Lee recovered a settlement award of $49,500.00!
