Faraci Lange Partner, John A. Falk, recently settled an auto accident case for a Spencerport resident who suffered serious injuries on the right side of her body after her car was hit by an oncoming driver who had drifted into her lane. The driver's negligence caused severe injuries to our client, who still suffers from tricompartmental arthritis in her right knee.
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.
John Falk was able to negotiate a successful settlement for our client.
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.
