In July of 2019 our 51-year-old married client was at a fully stopped at an off ramp of I-84 in Newburgh. Another driver was not paying attention, was traveling at an excessive rate of speed and struck our client’s stopped vehicle. As a result of the crash our client suffered pelvic fractures which thankfully healed without surgery. The case was settled against the defendant driver by Steven H. Cohen quickly for full policy limits without the need for a lawsuit. We then were able to secure a 6 figure settlement from our client’s own SUM carrier.
This is just another reason why every owner of a vehicle in NYS should make absolutely sure that they have adequate SUM coverage.
