Arbitration Award: $72,500.000

$72,500.00 dollars awarded in an arbitration stemming from a two-car accident that occurred in midtown Manhattan. The plaintiff sustained a knee injury as a result of the accident.

The defendant argued that the accident was the plaintiff’s fault for failing to avoid the defendant’s turning vehicle. The defendant’s also argued that plaintiff was not injured in the accident; that the plaintiff’s knee condition was “degenerative” in nature (in other words, that it was not caused as a result of the accident); and that the minimal amount of medical treatment undergone by the plaintiff demonstrated that his injuries were insignificant.

R&R represented the plaintiff and presented evidence proving that the defendant was responsible for the accident and demonstrating the serious nature of the injuries sustained by the plaintiff. The arbitrator agreed with the plaintiff and awarded him $72,500.00
