NYC Bus Passenger Accident Lawyer Review: Maddie

NYC bus passenger accident lawyer review maddie

“You will never find someone like Adam Handler. He was there for me like a real son. Even when I had a hard time eating in the hospital, Adam was there for me to encourage me to eat. I’m thankful to Adam for helping me to win my case and I want to also thank my children for taking care of me after my accident.”

-Maddie from Jamaica, NY

Settlement: $5,000,000.00

What Happened?

On December 1, 2014, Maddie finished with work and was on her way to the Q25 bus stop located at Hoover Avenue/84th Avenue and Parsons Boulevard in Queens, New York. She was waiting at the bus stop when she noticed 2 buses arrive at the same time.  Since Maddie was near the front of the line, she proceeded to get onto the first arriving bus when the door opened.  As she was getting onto the bus, she was slammed by the closing door and fell to the ground!  The driver of the bus refused to help and continued his route, leaving Maddie behind. Thankfully, other bus passengers assisted Maddie to the next bus and was taken to see the bus supervisor.  The supervisor arranged for Maddie to be transported by ambulance to the emergency department at Jamaica Hospital.

Maddie was hospitalized for several days and was bedridden for over 3 months.  She suffered injuries to her head, neck, back, legs, hands, left shoulder, feet and more. When therapy and pain management injections did not provide substantial relief of her spinal pain, Maddie was required to undergo spine surgery. Due to her pain and physical limitations, Maddie was never able to go back to work and is now permanently disabled. Despite the extensive treatment and surgeries, Maddie continues to experience chronic pain that can be expected to become more severe over time. Prior to the accident, Maddie had no physical limitations or injury history.

After her accident, Maddie searched for a lawyer to take her case. To her dismay, her case kept getting rejected by law firms.  With no idea what to do next, Maddie’s work friend called her to see how she was doing and told her to call Adam Handler!  Although the bus driver lied and claimed that Maddie was running to the bus, The Case Handler team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP successfully proved the Defendant’s negligence and recovered a remarkable $5,000,000.00 in total compensation!

The Result: $5,000,000.00 Settlement
