Our client and her mother were passengers on a New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus in the Bronx on their way to the grocery store when the bus, while attempting to pass a SUV, struck the back of it, causing our client to be thrown from her seat into the partition wall behind the driver. She sustained injuries to her back and neck, which forced her to retire from her job of 34 years as a Certified Nursing Assistant.

After no offers of settlement and six years of litigation, Justin Blitz, Esq. took the case to trial, and a $350,000 settlement was reached in the middle of trial just after our client had finished testifying.
