Duffy & Duffy Secures $1.4 Million Verdict for 30 Year Old Woman Rendered Disabled After an Auto Accident.

Online PR News – 30-April-2022 – Uniondale, New York – Duffy & Duffy, PLLC has secured a $1.4 million verdict for a case involving a 30-year-old woman with a medical history of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) and fibromyalgia who was rendered disabled after being a victim of an auto accident.

This accident occurred in New York City at the intersection of Broadway and Houston street. The client was a passenger in a yellow taxi cab that was rear-ended by another commercial vehicle. There was no damage to either vehicle, no police were involved, and the client never went to the hospital. However, she complained of neck pain in the days following the incident. As the pain intensified, she received muscle relaxers and was prescribed physical therapy.

In 2006, the client received an MRI, which revealed a syrinx cyst and cervical disk bulges in her spine. The nature of her pre-existing conditions left her highly susceptible to whiplash injuries and, as a result, led to the accelerated degeneration of her cervical spine. Before the accident, the client was well on her way to becoming a partner at a law firm as a patent attorney. Unfortunately, the debilitating impact of this negligence rendered her disabled and unable to work.

“The defendant took the position that it was not possible for a 2-mph collision to cause a spinal cord injury, especially given the fact that the plaintiff sought no medical treatment on the day of the accident. The jury disagreed.” - Cliff Argintar (Lead Trial Counsel at Duffy & Duffy, PLLC.)

The dedicated attorneys at Duffy & Duffy, PLLC. have been helping victims obtain compensation after auto accidents for over twenty years. As trial counsel, Cliff Argintar litigated this case and secured a jury verdict of $1,406,000 when the insurance company refused to offer anything above $100,000 to our client. The client experienced accelerated and disabling injuries due to the taxi drivers’ negligence. While no amount of compensation can reverse the life-altering effects of this incident, the verdict reached by Duffy & Duffy, PLLC. will help to alleviate her medical costs and financial burdens.
