Mitch Portnoi Obtains $875,000 Settlement for Accident Victim

June 13, 2018

After 4 years of hard-fought litigation, Mitch Portnoi recently secured an $875,000 settlement for a client who had two successive motorcycle accidents within a short period of time. Complicating the matter was the fact that the cases were consolidated for the litigation due to the proximity of the two accidents and the overlapping of the opinions of doctors as to which accident caused which injuries. The case was further complicated by the client having had prior medical conditions in areas affected in the case, including two prior lower back surgeries and congenital and arthritic conditions. Numerous expert witnesses were retained for the matter including a neuro-radiologist, an orthopedic surgeon, a neurosurgeon, a vocational rehabilitation expert and an economic loss expert. The matter settled shortly before it was scheduled to begin trial.
