Car Accident: Greatly Increases Plaintiff's Award

Car Accident: $500,500 Settlement
An Orange County jury awarded the victim of a rear-end collision $500,500 for pain and suffering, for the worsening of a neck condition resulting in surgery. The victim was considering surgery before the collision, but the accident significantly worsened the injury, causing a more serious surgery. Complications during the surgery nearly caused the victim's death. The defendant argued the victim's injury was not worsened by the collision, because the accident caused only slight damage to the victim's car.
Car Accident: $150,000 Recovery To Back Injury Victim
A South Fallsburg woman was awarded the entire insurance policy as compensation for serious injuries she suffered to her lower back as a result of an August 29, 2002, car accident in the town of Thompson. The accident caused a herniated disc in her lumbar spine. The insurance company refused all settlement offers, claiming that the injuries were caused by arthritis and not the accident. After an arbitration proceeding, the referee determined that the car accident caused the herniated disc. On August 3, 2005, he awarded the woman $150,000.

Dog Attack: Landmark Settlement Awarded To 5-Year-Old Girl
A 5-year-old Montgomery girl was awarded a landmark settlement as compensation for serious injuries she suffered on June 28, 2003, when her neighbor's dog attacked her.
