            M.M., 27, was hit by a NYC sanitation truck while driving home from a wedding in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The truck was trying to merge into his lane to avoid construction ahead on the BQE (Brooklyn-Queens Expressway). But the truck collided with M.M.’s vehicle and dragged it for several seconds, leaving it totaled and leaving the young man inside with herniated discs and torn muscles in his neck and back. M.M. underwent surgery for his injuries, but still was no longer able to work with his family’s construction company.

Frontal car crashThe attorneys at Hill & Moin LLP represented M.M. in a suit against the City. The City claimed that the driver ran into M.M. because there was ice on the road, but weather reports showed that the road was dry that night. The firm obtained a $375,000 settlement for M.M. He appreciated the hard work: “It was a pleasure to be there and have someone work hard to get every penny possible. The firm was very friendly, and there were very passionate people.” M.M. is now active in civics, and, as an Argentinean Jew and speaker of both Yiddish and Spanish, he acts as a liaison between the Latin American and Jewish communities in his neighborhood.
