Settlement For Wrist Fractures Sustained In Motor Vehicle Accident

Mark Freeley was able to settle this Nassau County case at mediation for a cash value of $575,000 with a total payout of approximately $1.1 million. The 19-year-old plaintiff was driving her car when she was struck by a limousine that failed to stop at a stop sign. The plaintiff’s airbag deployed causing a fracture of both wrists. Mark was able to obtain summary judgment on liability against the defendant, so that the only issue was damages. Despite having to undergo surgery for the wrist fractures, the plaintiff made an excellent recovery with minimal residual problems.
