Confidential Settlement

Queens Defective Sidewalk Accident Attorney: Adriana

- Adriana from Queens, NY



What Happened?

On the morning of December 26, 2018, Adriana was strolling along the sidewalk of Woodhaven Boulevard. As she adjusted her purse while walking, her right foot unexpectedly caught on some uneven pavement, sending her tumbling to the ground. She landed heavily on her outstretched left hand, instantly feeling a surge of pain shoot through her wrist. Urgently, Adriana sought medical attention, leading to evaluation, treatment, and the application of a cast (splint) to her injured left wrist.

The aftermath of the accident left Adriana with significant injuries to her left wrist. A thorough evaluation revealed a left wrist intra-articular distal radius fracture, necessitating surgical intervention in January 2019. Following the procedure, she endured 23 hours of observation due to unmanageable pain and swelling. For a minimum of two months post-surgery, Adriana found herself unable to perform basic tasks such as lifting, pushing, or pulling with her left wrist. While the surgery proved successful, she continued to experience recurring dull pain, mild stiffness, and weakness in her left wrist even after a couple of years. In July 2021, Adriana underwent a pain management injection that provided more pain relief.

Prompted by a colleague’s recommendation, Adriana wasted no time in reaching out to Adam Handler for legal assistance just two days after her fall. With the unwavering support of our diligent personal injury lawyers in New York City, it came to light that the New York City Department of Transportation had received written notice about the hazardous conditions of the same sidewalk at least one year prior to Adriana’s accident. Despite the City’s initial refusal to accept liability for Adriana’s injuries, our Queens defective sidewalk accident attorney tenaciously fought on her behalf, ensuring that Adriana’s medical expenses were covered and securing an impressive six-figure settlement!
