On January 1, 2019, Veronica was walking across a hotel parking lot in New Rochelle. As she was walking, a drunk driver struck her on the right side of her body and fell on her left knee. Veronica was in so much pain that she was unable to get up. When the ambulance arrived, the crew helped carry her to the ambulance and took her to Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital. Veronica was treated and released home with medication.
As a result of the accident, Veronica sustained injuries to her right shoulder, right knee, neck and back. After she was initially discharged from the hospital, she noticed substantial pain in her right shoulder and right knee. Veronica went to a different hospital, Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital, for additional evaluation. Veronica was again treated and released home with medication. Finally, it was discovered by MRI that she had a full-thickness rotator cuff tear in her right shoulder that required surgical intervention on February 22, 2019. Veronica also suffered a right knee horizontal tear in the posterior corner of the medial meniscus, and a complete tear of the proximal fibers of the ACL. She was required to attend physical therapy for several weeks and is now totally disabled.
Veronica heard about The Case Handler team’s great reputation from a friend and called Adam Handler soon after the accident. Our team discovered that before hitting Veronica, the drunk driver struck a parked unoccupied vehicle and was attempting to leave the scene! The Defendant’s insurance company made an initial offer that was shockingly low. With the help of our elite New Rochelle pedestrian accident lawyers at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, Veronica’s medical bills were paid and she recovered over double the amount of compensation from the Defendant’s insurance company!
