Our client was a 36-year old cable TV installer, en route to a job, when his truck collided with another vehicle as they both drove through an intersection in Queens. both drivers claimed they had the green light. The driver of another car in the vicinity claimed that our client had gone through the red light but we questioned this witness’ ability to actually see the lights from his vantage point. Our client sustained a fractured right patella (kneecap) which required surgery. Then, his surgical wound became infected requiring further hospital care and treatment. The opposing vehicle had a limited ($25,000) insurance policy, so in addition, we also brought an underinsurance claim and a malpractice suit for causing the infection. The claims settled for $360,000.
