Single Car Accident Lawyer Review: Jamaican Student

“You want it done right…choose Adam. I didn’t know him at all and at first I wasn’t too trusting of the process. But after I met with Adam, I was relieved. Adam is now a good friend of mine. He did an excellent job.”

-Student from Jamaica, West Indies

$150,000.00 Settlement

What Happened?

On June 14, 2015, our client (which we will refer to as “Student”) was a front seat passenger in a van that was traveling south on Interstate 81. As the van was exiting the highway at exit 85, the driver of the van failed to slow down enough to steer through the right curved exit ramp safely. The driver lost control and drove off the left side of the ramp into the grassy median. The van continued through the grassy median and came upon the ramp from SR-934 north that caused the van to overturn when it hit the lip of the ramp. The van rolled about five times and stopped at the bottom of a ravine off of the ramp.

Student and the driver of the vehicle were transported to Hershey Medical Center for evaluation. A passenger sitting in the rear (also a Case Handler client – you’ll just have to wait for another Tuesday) was ejected out the driver’s side rear window and was flown by Life Flight to Hershey Medical Center. As a result of the single car accident, Student suffered injuries to his head and lower back that made prolong sitting or walking very difficult. Student attended physical therapy 3 times a week and received 2 lumbar injections to help manage his pain.

Since he was not the owner of the vehicle, Student did not hire a lawyer at first. He patiently waited for the owner of the vehicle to help handle the situation but unfortunately, the owner refused to disclose his insurance information. It should be noted that Student and the other occupants were visiting the United States from Jamaica and because they were only here on a Visa, the owner thought he would never hear from them again. What the owner didn’t realize is that Adam Handler’s firm, Pollack, Pollack, Isaac, & DeCicco, LLP, has a thriving immigration practice. With the help of the immigration attorneys at PPID, Student was able to have his visitor’s visa extended allowing him to receive the proper medical attention and pursue a lawsuit! Gladly, The Case Handler team took over after the immigration issue was cleared up and ensured that Student’s medical bills were completely paid. In addition, Adam Handler was able to secure a $150,000.00 settlement even after Student returned home to Jamaica.

The Result: $150,000.00 Settlement

Contact Adam Handler – Single Car Accident Lawyer

Single car accidents can be a tricky situation to be faced with. As a passenger, Student was a victim of reckless driving and the person at-fault in his situation was the person sitting right next to him driving the van. Are drivers always at fault in single car accidents? No. There are many different factors that could cause a single car accident such as poor road maintenance, a vehicle defect, and even trying to avoid a crash with another vehicle/ pedestrian. If you are an injured driver or passenger in a single car accident (whether you’re from the U.S., Jamaica, or the moon), contact a trusted New York City accident lawyer to evaluate your case. If you want it done right…choose Adam.
