HOLTSVILLE, NY, October 14, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Long Island personal injury law firm Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. landed a $1.4 million legal settlement for their client, a woman who suffered injuries after a vehicle struck her car at a train trestle underpass.
The woman was sitting in the passenger seat of her stopped car at a train trestle underpass. The underpass was too narrow for vehicles to pass in both directions. The defendant, who was driving toward the woman and her husband, claimed he was temporarily blinded by the high beams on the plaintiff's car.
The driver overcompensated by swerving to the right, which caused his vehicle to strike the sidewall of the train trestle underpass, then careen off the wall directly into the plaintiff's stopped car.
The woman suffered neck and back injuries that required a cervical fusion surgery and a lumbar ablation and microdiscectomy surgery.
Disputing the Defense to Establish Liability
The legal team at Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. succeeded in obtaining summary judgment on the issue of the defendant's liability based on causation. "We argued that the glare from an opposing vehicle's headlights was not something that was unexpected and that the defendant should have either stopped or slowed his vehicle," said Matthew H. Bligh, Esq., of Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P.
Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P.'s attorneys always like to prepare as if going to trial with evidence that will clearly depict the damages their client has suffered as the result of the accident in question. In this case, the law firm had its medical illustrator create medical illustrations that helped describe the client's injuries and the procedures she was forced to endure.
"Not only did these medical illustrations clearly depict our client's injuries and surgeries," Bligh said. "They also show that we are prepared to go to trial and are willing and able to spend whatever it takes to properly present a client's case."
