“Adam is the best lawyer I know. The end.”
-George from Mt. Vernon, NY
On February 26, 2016, George was working as an electrician and mechanic laborer. While unloading a switchgear weighing 400 pounds on a truck bed, the rope holding it snapped, causing him to fall off the truck. George remembers falling backwards, hitting his head, and losing consciousness. When he woke up approximately 30 minutes later, there was no ambulance and his boss asked that he continue working, which he tried to do but the pain and swelling in his left hand and wrist was too much to bear. With no help by his employer, George went home and then took a taxi to Montefiore Hospital, where he was seen and evaluated by the emergency department physician.
As a result of the accident, George suffered burnt trauma, contusions, left hand fracture, and head injury. He also had persistent pain in the neck radiating into the left shoulder/arm, lower back, and left knee. He received 2 epidural injections to his back, trigger point injections to his neck and back, and ultimately had surgery to his left knee. George could only sit or stand for 30 minutes at best and walking was limited. To this day, his jaw makes a clicking noise from the fall and he remains out of work.
