In September, 2013, Schulman Blitz, LLP‘s client, a 51 year old bus driver for the New York City Transit Authority, was driving her regular Coney Island bus route. She had stopped at a bus stop to pick up and discharge passengers when the bus that she was driving was hit in the rear by a SUV.
As a result of the crash, our client sustained multiple injuries, including torn ligaments in her knee, for which she underwent arthroscopic surgical intervention. Our client was also caused to miss a significant amount of time from work as a result of her injuries.
After winning our motion to have the court determine, as a matter of law, that the defendant was completely responsible for the collision, Stephanie Mastrocola, Esq. settled our client’s case for $90,000.
