Our client was on a New York City bus on her regular way to work as a home health aide. As she was walking to get off the bus, the bus driver activated the wheelchair ramp, causing our client’s foot to get stuck in the ramp as it was being automatically lifted. Our client was taken to the hospital where it was found her injuries included a fractured foot and a tear to the meniscus of her knee that required surgery. We sued the MTA who vigorously defended the bus driver in a contentious litigation. On the eve of trial after years of litigation, Justin Blitz settled our clients case for $315,000.
