Our client, a 66 year old woman, had left her home in the Bronx and was driving her car on her way to meet some friends. She stopped at a red light at the intersection of East 222nd Street at White Plains Road. When the light turned green, she began to proceed into the intersection, when her car was struck by a sanitation truck that suddenly and without warning began to back up into the the middle of intersection.
As a result of the crash, our client sustained injuries to her lower back, which required a spinal fusion surgery. While litigation was ongoing, Justin Blitz, Esq. was able to procure a settlement for our client in the amount of $590,000.
