$485,000.00 Settlement


Adam Handler and Lawrence talk live right after settling the case for $485,000.00! “I’ve never been so happy in my life as I am today!” -Lawrence C.

What Happened?

On September 18, 2014, Lawrence was working as an Uber driver (rideshare service).  As Lawrence cautiously waited for traffic to pass before turning left to pick up a customer, he was rear-ended by another vehicle.  The crash propelled his vehicle forward, causing him to crash into an oncoming vehicle (accident depiction below).

Lawrence C - Uber Accident Diagram

Lawrence was transported by ambulance to Harlem Hospital for medical evaluation and was discharged later that day. As a result of the accident, Lawrence suffered the following injuries:

  • Left shoulder synovitis with a SLAP tear, partial rotator cuff tear, subacromnial impingement (requiring surgery);
  • C5/6, C4/5, C/3/4 and C2/3 disc herniations with foraminal impingement (requiring epidural steroid injections);

Lawrence has listened to Adam’s radio show for many years and knew The Case Handler was the right attorney for his case.

This case is just another example as to how the right attorney makes all the difference.  First, since Lawrence was injured during the course of his employment, he was entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits.  In New York, when you are injured on the job, Workers Compensation is responsible for paying all medical bills and lost wages.  The Case Handler team made sure Lawrence received every dollar he lost due to being out of work.  In addition, all medical bills were paid.

Second, the driver of the vehicle that struck Lawrence claimed that Lawrence stopped short causing the accident. After depositions, we filed a Motion for Summary Judgment under the well settled law that a driver of the rear vehicle must keep a safe distance to avoid striking the vehicle to the front.  The Court accepted our argument and found the defendant to be 100% responsible, thus expediting the case and putting pressure on the Defendants to settle or go to trial.  The result?  The Defendants agreed to settle less than a month later for $485,000.00!
