Substantial Monetary Recovery For Our Client Who Was At Fault For Accident
Even though our client was substantially responsible and at fault for his own injuries, personal injury attorney Todd Greenberg was able to secure a substantial settlement in the amount of $275,000.00! Our client, a seventy four year old man, was getting off a bus in Nassau County going to work. Instead of using the crosswalk, the client crossed Old Country Road and was struck by a vehicle making a left turn. If our client used the crosswalk, he would have been on the passenger side of the vehicle and not in the path of the car when it was making a left turn. However, after extensive investigation and research, it was discovered that the driver of the vehicle did not see our client due to “sun glare”. The Defendant argued that there was no liability because our client was not in the crosswalk. Under New York’s Comparative Negligence Doctrine, Mr. Greenberg argued that the Defendant’s vehicle proceeded even though there was “sun glare” and there should be liability. Mr. Greenberg discovered a case, exactly on point, that said since the driver was familiar with the area (which this driver was) he should also be familiar with the patterns of the sun and, therefore, was negligent by driving when vision was impaired. Instead of receiving no compensation for his injuries, based on a comparative negligence situation, our client was still able to recover $275,000.00 for a fractured leg!
