A Personal Injury Lawyer at Antin, Ehrlich and Epstein secured a $1,350,000 settlement for the wrongful death of a 46 year old man. The deceased’s vehicle was struck by another car traveling in the opposite direction which crossed over the double yellow line, causing a head on collision.
Had this case of wrongful death gone to trial, NYC Personal Injury Attorney Scott Epstein would have proved that the cause of the accident was that the roadway had become worn. For a long time, due to years of traffic, the road had become slippery and polished, deteriorating from its functionality and clearly making it unsafe for drivers.
The County of Orange had received actual written notice of the condition. Although they were aware of 55 similar motor vehicle accidents at the same location, the County did not make the repairs necessary to increase driver safety.
Scott Epstein not only succeeded in obtaining a sizable settlement in this wrongful death case, but also made certain that justice was served.
