Schulman Blitz, LLP‘s 5 year old client was crossing West 86th Street, at its intersection with Central Park West in Manhattan, and was in the crosswalk with his nanny when he was struck by a taxi cab that was making a turn. Our young client sustained severe injuries, including fractures to his leg and hand.
On the eve of trial, after intense negotiations, Stephanie Mastrocola, Esq. was able to successfully settle our client’s case for a very favorable amount that will appropriately compensate him for his injuries.
As with all settlements involving children, the settlement monies will be placed into an interest bearing bank account until the child reaches the age of 18.
