On May 17th, 2021, Cooper was driving for a rideshare company on Kings Highway in New Rochelle, New York. He was on his way to pick up a passenger when he began to slow down with traffic. At that moment, he was suddenly rear-ended by the car behind him, causing Cooper to hit the car in front of him! The driver that hit Cooper told the police that Cooper and the vehicle in front were the ones that both suddenly slowed down, giving them no time to safely stop. Cooper was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he was evaluated, treated, and discharged home with pain medication.
Cooper injured his neck, back, and left leg due to the accident. As a result, he suffered pain, limitation of motion, and muscle weakness in his lower back region. He described his neck pain as sharp and constantly radiating in the left upper extremity, and his back pain as a sharp stiff aching pain that was associated with muscle spasms and tingling with radiation down his left leg. Prolonged activities would aggravate the pain in his back and he also had difficulty sleeping through the night. For better stability and support, he wore a lumbar brace and used a cane to walk. When extensive conservative treatment failed to improve his injuries, Cooper received pain management injections, underwent lumbar microdiscectomy surgery at L5-S1, and spine surgery (anterior lumbar interbody fusion). Unfortunately, Cooper was unable to go back to work and suffers permanent pain to this day.
