Bicyclist seriously injured in hit and run (Philadelphia)

Zajac & Padilla represented a Polish man who was injured when a car struck him from behind while he was riding his bicycle in the Port Richmond neighborhood of Philadelphia. The driver of the car fled the scene before police arrived. A passerby had recorded his license plate. Because the injured man spoke only Polish, he had difficulty communicating with the Police.

His communication difficulties were resolved when he hired Dominik Rostocki, Esq., an attorney at Zajac & Padilla who speaks fluent Polish. After extensive investigation – including tracking down the passerby through 911 dispatch records — Zajac & Padilla was able to secure the driver’s insurance information and negotiate a significant recovery.
