Faraci Lange attorney, Jennifer L. Fay, recently resolved an auto accident lawsuit for an Erie county resident who sustained serious injuries when her vehicle was struck from behind and pushed onto oncoming traffic, where it was hit head-on by another car. The client’s airbags deployed and she was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
The police report indicated that factors contributing to the accident included unsafe speed and distraction of the driver who struck the client’s vehicle from behind.
Following the accident, the client was diagnosed with a knee injury and hematoma, post concussion headache, and had to undergo physical therapy for several months.
The client met the serious injury threshold, which is one of the criteria that an injured victim must prove in auto accident cases in the state of New York. Generally, this means that the client needs to have suffered a significant injury that can be objectively verified by a medical test or evaluation.
Faraci Lange has handled thousands of automobile accident cases and has vast experience in working with treating physicians to document serious injuries for purposes of meeting this threshold.
