NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Announce Two Substantial Settlements

Frekhtman & Associates is a New York City personal injury law firm with several multi-million dollar verdicts. The firm specializes in serious and catastrophic injury litigation and many other types of accident and injury matters.

Frekhtman & Associates, Attorneys at Law and attorney Arkady Frekhtman are pleased to announce that they successfully negotiated and resolved two complex litigation matters recently. The first matter settled at a private mediation for $525,000.00 It involved a paraplegic patient who alleged she was seriously injured when her home attendant improperly moved her into a wheelchair. When the home attendant’s hand slipped from the patient’s hip up to her armpit, the plaintiff claimed she sustained a permanent brachial plexus injury. The defendant’s insurance carrier and attorneys refused to offer any compensation arguing the slight transfer mishap could not have caused such a permanent injury. However, due to expert testimony from a doctor and nurse, Frekhtman & Associates were able to recover over half a million for this client in a difficult litigation venue, Suffolk County.

In a car accident case, Frekhtman & Associates represented a passenger who was seriously injured when two cars collided at an intersection. A taxi failed to stop at a stop sign and a private sedan T boned the taxi. The difficulty presented by the case was that the taxi had relatively little insurance coverage while the private vehicle’s insurance argued they had no liability. With the help of accident reconstruction experts and relying on violations of Vehicle & Traffic Law statutes, the firm was able to show that the private sedan was speeding based on the severity of the impact as well as how far each vehicle was pushed after impact. This resulted in a settlement of $500,000.00 with the insurance company that previously refused to pay anything tendering the majority of this global settlement.

Frekhtman & Associates offer a free case evaluation to potential clients. The accident lawyers

Successful case prosecution in several cases has resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts for clients.

The legal representatives understand that a personal injury is a life-changing event.

Insurance payment may not cover living expenses, doctor bills and various other expenses. It is critical to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to handle the case.
