New York Spinal Injury Lawyers understand that accidents can happen anywhere at any time, which is why they are always ready to assist when someone needs compensation after suffering an injury.
Something as mundane as a trip to the supermarket resulted in an injurious fall for one 54-year-old woman. The supermarket attempted to prove that the injuries were not caused by the fall – the jury found the supermarket at fault. The plaintiff suffered two herniated discs, impingements on her spinal cord, and compression of the nerve leading to her shoulder an arm. It was proven these injuries caused her pain and that those injuries happened after the incident in the market. Slip and Fall Injuries are often treated in Manhattan and Brooklyn hospitals.
The jury awarded the woman $15,000 for future pain and suffering, but that was not enough. NYC Spinal Injury Lawyers were quick to show the victim required painkillers, exercise at two-hour intervals and a cervical collar on a daily basis. Her daily activities were severely curtailed by her injuries. In light of this, an award of $100,000 for future pain and suffering was sought, as well as $75,000 for past pain and suffering.
