Hill & Moin LLP gets compensation for a Russian speaker involved in a car accident.
Tamara Ignatova, 61, a Brooklyn resident originally from Russia, was in a traumatic car accident about two and a half years ago. She was riding with a friend on her way to work as a home health aide when a speeding vehicle plowed into them. The car was totaled, and Ms. Ignatova sustained a concussion, fractured ribs, a broken collar bone, and herniated discs in addition to hurting her right ankle, hip, and shoulder. She spent several days in the hospital. When she was released, she was unable to work and was physically dependent on her daughter who was forced to move in with her. Ms. Ignatova began looking for legal help, and was fortunate enough to find Hill & Moin LLP. “It is very good that you have a Russian speaker in the office,” said Ms. Ignatova, who speaks very little English, by way of a translator. She is still in terrible pain from the accident, but she is happy that the attorneys at Hill & Moin LLP worked quickly to help her recover the six-figure settlement that she deserved.

D.E., from Bronx, NY, was only in her mid-20s when she was diagnosed with a herniated disc in her back. In June 2004, she went to a chiropractor because of the pain. Three days of the chiropractor’s treatment put her in an operating room for emergency surgery and caused difficulty urinating that lasted for years. She still has back pain.
But, thanks to Hill & Moin LLP, D.E. also has compensation for her injuries in the amount of $750,000. The firm achieved this high six-figure settlement for her through hard work. D.E. didn’t mind the wait: “It’s all worth it in the end,” she said.
