$1.16 Million for Complex Four Car Accident Reconstruction

Joram Hirsch represented the estate  of an elderly gentleman who was killed (and his widow, who was seriously  injured) in a four-car collision.

The car in front of our  client's car, traveling in the same lane, collided with the first of two  vehicles racing towards our client's car. As a result of that first  collision, the oncoming car skidded along the road and crashed head-on  into our client's car.

The issue in the case was which of the two  cars that collided in front of our client's car was slightly over the  centerline of the road. Because each of the parties had a different  claim as to how the collision occurred, each presented testimony from  accident reconstruction experts who, based on the physical evidence,  offered their opinions as to how the collision occurred.

Because  of the complexity of the case the trial lasted 16 weeks. The jury  returned a verdict in favor of our clients totaling $1.16 million.
