On August 15, 2013, the plaintiff was standing on a sidewalk on First Avenue in Brooklyn when a commercial truck struck him.

The plaintiff injured his neck and back and ultimately underwent L4-L5 hemilaminectomy, facetectomy, and foraminotomy with decompression of the nerve roots. There was no hardware used in connection with the surgery. The plaintiff also had some unpaid medical bills due to insurance issues. The case was resolved prior to trial for $215,000.
