Feb. 23, 2021 – At 7:12 a.m., while traveling alone to a film shoot, Tiger Woods was involved in a serious single-vehicle accident in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. According to police investigations, Woods crossed the center line on a steep hill before a curve then is believed to have overcorrected, running off the shoulder of the road, sending his car rolling down an embankment. Police have stated that alcohol was not a factor in the accident, but a full investigation is ongoing and will likely take weeks to conclude. According to police reports, 13 accidents have occurred at this location over the last year.

Woods was taken to a Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles where he has undergone several procedures to treat serious orthopedic leg injuries. According to chief medical officer Anish Mahajan, Woods suffered “comminuted open fractures to the tibia and fibula, which means both major bones in his lower right leg broke into multiple pieces and poked through the skin”. Doctors inserted a rod into  Mr. Wood’s tibia to stabilize his foot and ankle using pins and screws and also relieved the swelling in his legs. Despite the severity of his injuries, doctors are cautiously optimistic that Tiger can make a full return, although it will be a long, hard process.

Countless professional golfers have issued statements, thankful that Mr. Woods is alive and wishing him a speedy, full recovery. The team at Cellino Law feels the same way, and while he is not from New York, Tiger has played many rounds of golf in the NYC area, had an apartment here, and docked his yacht in the area.

  • I really just wanted to say thank you so much for taking my case, answering all my questions, and mostly for being very patient with me. I feel that without you and Roza I would not have been able to get anything at all. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will definitely want you both working for me. Again thank your for you hard work, time and patience.


  • Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I am very pleased (and surprised) at the amount of the settlement. We will use the funds to help pay down the debt on the truck we had to purchase after ours was totaled. Thank you again.


  • I want to thank your law firm for settling my lawsuit where others failed. You treated me with the utmost respect and care, because of your law firm the dream of owning my own home finally came true. For the first time in a long time, we're living out our dream home. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for making my dream come true.


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.
