$250,000 Settlement


A 17-year-old was completing her daily running routine when she was waiting on the corner to cross the street. A car driving through the intersection swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. During the evasive maneuver, our client was hit in the leg, resulting in a fracture. Finz & Finz, P.C., brought a lawsuit in Nassau County Supreme Court. Although the drivers stood fast in their defense, arguing that they were not negligent, after tough negotiations Finz & Finz, P.C., secured a favorable settlement for our client in the sum of $250,000.
