On June 27, 2017, Cecilia was driving along Harney Road in Yonkers, New York, when she noticed traffic stopping about 200 feet ahead of her. As she gradually slowed herself to a stop, Cecilia’s Jeep was abruptly rear-ended by the vehicle behind her. Cecilia recalls the shock she felt when the collision sent a violent and powerful force that overwhelmed her body. The airbags in Cecilia’s Jeep did not deploy and her body suffered the brunt of the impact. Not only did she suffer severe whiplash, but her shoulder and back sustained serious damage as well. Following the accident, Cecilia was taken by ambulance to Lawrence Hospital.
The accident left Cecilia with pain searing throughout her body. The damage became so severe, that she was unable to perform even the most menial of physical tasks. She experienced tingling, numbness and burning sensations throughout her upper and lower extremities, as well as a severe restriction to the range of motion in her neck. Upon further examination, Cecilia was diagnosed with disc bulges, herniations and labral tears. Not only did she need steroid injections for her neck and back, but she also underwent arthroscopic surgery for her shoulder. To top it off, Cecilia was confined to a neck brace and CPM machine while she healed. Once she got better, she had 8 additional weeks of massage therapy and physical therapy.
Luckily for Cecilia, she had heard about The Case Handler team. Upon sustaining these significant injuries from her rear-end accident, Cecilia knew exactly who to call. Following her initial meeting with Adam Handler and Matthew Goodstein, Cecilia was unsure as to whether her legal team would keep her informed throughout her case. However, it did not take long for her to realize just how involved and hands-on her attorneys are with their clients. Throughout the entire process, The Case Handler team provided updates and would check in on Cecilia to see how she was doing. With the help of our personal injury team at PPID, Cecilia successfully recovered the maximum policy limits of $100,000.00!
