Partner Matthew Shwom Obtains Dismissal of Claim at Arbitration

Partner Matthew Shwom conducted an uninsured motorist (UM) arbitration hearing stemming from a bus accident and obtained a dismissal of the claim after the Arbitrator found that the claimant did not sustain a “Serious Injury” that would be compensable under the New York State Insurance Law.  The UM arbitration was held on September 23, 2016.  The Arbitrator heard testimony from the claimant and her mother regarding the cervical and lumbar injuries alleged as well as the documentary medical evidence presented by the claimant’s attorney.  The Arbitrator further considered the cross examination of the claimant and the claimant’s mother by Matthew Shwom.  After all of the testimony was heard and the evidence was submitted, the case was dismissed.
