Long Island, NY Personal Injury Law Firm Obtains $600,000 Settlement for Car Accident Victim
Plaintiffs' Personal Injury Attorneys at the Long Island firm of Palermo Tuohy Bruno, P.L.L.C, settle car accident case for $600,000.
Hauppauge, New York, April 14, 2015 (Newswire.com) - The personal injury law firm of Palermo Tuohy Bruno, P.L.L.C. is pleased to report the settlement of a car accident case for $600,000.
The plaintiff in the case was involved in a low speed rear end collision and suffered a lower back injury. After a landscaping truck struck her car, the driver did not immediately feel pain in her back. The pain, however, began in the following days and gradually intensified over time, culminating in the need for a spinal fusion. The defendant argued that due to the light impact of the accident and the delay in the onset of pain, that the accident was not the likely cause of the plaintiff’s back condition, but rather the pain was due to a pre-existing spinal condition.
Steven Palermo, managing partner at Palermo Tuohy Bruno P.L.L.C. stated, “Our goal is always to obtain a fair compensation for our clients. In this case, through our use of the plaintiff’s treating physicians, we were able to establish that the injury was likely caused by the accident and, therefore, persuaded the defense to settle the case for a substantial amount of money for our client’s pain and suffering." He added, “The client was extremely pleased that the case was settled for such a large sum of money without the need of a stressful trial.”
