On February 29, 2016, Presley was driving from work on Martling Avenue in Richmond County when he was involved in a three-car collision. The first car rear-ended the second car, causing the second car to rear-end Presley’s vehicle. He was carried out on a stretcher and was taken by ambulance to the emergency room. Presley stayed in the hospital for three days as a result of his injuries.
Presley suffered injuries to his mid-back, neck, and head. He had multiple herniated discs in his back that required pain management injections, including epidural steroid injections. He also sprained his cervical and lumbar spine because of the accident. Presley reported having throbbing headaches and severe neck pain. He was confined to his bed and home for approximately four weeks. Presley was a machine operator and a sheet metal worker. His injuries caused him to miss two weeks of work after the accident. Presley later underwent neck surgery and as a result, Presley had to cut off his dreads and missed a significant amount of work!
Before his accident, Presley had head about Adam Handler – The Case Handler. He never thought he would be in an accident, but he thought he should save Adam’s number. Thankfully, Presley did! While Presley focused on healing, The Case Handler team got to work handling his bodily injury claim. The insurance company initially offered $25,000. Many individuals would have taken that money and run, but The Case Handler team knew the full insurance policy was $300,000. With the help of our diligent personal injury team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, Presley recovered $295,000 for his case!
