New York Construction Accident Lawyer Review: Eddie

New York Workers' Compensation Lawyer Review: Eddie

“Adam is a fighter and champion. His team did excellent. I’ve already recommended him to my friends because he’s the best there is. He kept all of his promises to me and I’m very happy with the outcome of my case.”

-Eddie from Brooklyn, NY

$372,500.00 Settlement

What Happened?

On January 31, 2014, Eddie was working as a carpenter when he fell off a ladder. The ladder tipped over and Eddie fell about 8 feet, landing onto his right hand.  He went to the emergency room for evaluation and was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the distal radius (broken right wrist). Eddie was discharged home with a prescription for pain medication and a cast for his wrist.

Following his release from the emergency room, Eddie participated in physical therapy, massage therapy, and heat and ice treatments.  He continued feeling severe pain in his right wrist despite conservative treatment.  He described the pain as “sharp, achy, and knife-like.”  As a result of the work-related construction accident, Eddie underwent surgery to his dominant right wrist even though the doctor explained that there was a high likelihood that his wrist may not get better.

Eddie hired Adam Handler when he was working at another law firm and (thankfully) stuck by Adam when The Case Handler team moved to Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP.  Good move Eddie!  At the end of his case, Eddie had an outstanding $73,000 workers’ compensation lien that he would be responsible to pay back.  However, our skilled New York construction accident legal team got the entire amount waived (more money in Eddie’s pocket) and successfully recovered $372,500.00 for Eddie!

The Result: $372,500.00 Settlement
