On January 31, 2017, Daisy was crossing the street on Tillary Street at the intersection of Jay Street in Brooklyn, NY. While walking in the crosswalk, a bus turning left failed to see Daisy in the crosswalk and struck her. Nearby pedestrians rushed to Daisy’s aid and stayed with her till the police and ambulance arrived. Daisy was rushed by ambulance to the Brooklyn Hospital Center, where she was evaluated and treated.
Daisy suffered injuries to her neck, back, and pelvis as a result of the accident. The accident caused herniated discs and a fracture in her mid-back as well as a fracture in her lower back. She complained of lower back pain radiating to her legs. She stated the pain her left leg was more painful than her right and consisted of weakness, numbness, and tingling. Daisy also suffered a fracture to her pelvic region and her right neck bone. The pain from the accident was described as sharp and constant. Daily activities such as bending, sitting, lying down, prolonged walking and prolonged standing all worsened her symptoms. She received epidural steroid injections in attempts to alleviate the pain in her back. Daisy attended physical therapy multiple times a week and was unable to go back to work for a significant amount of time due to the accident.
The bus driver claimed to have never seen Daisy when he made the turn. Adam fought hard to prove the driver was at fault and that the insurance company should be held responsible. In the end, The Case Handler team was able to recover a settlement amount of $1,875,000!
