$1.3M Commercial Vehicle Pedestrian Accident

Home / Case Results / / $1.3M Commercial Vehicle Pedestrian Accident

Compensation: $1,300,000

The case was prepared and ready for trial. Three orthopedic surgeons concluded our client, a 50-year-old Female resident of the Bronx and home nursing aid, would never return to work and would require an ankle fusion for her surgically repaired ankle fractures caused by a road supervisors failure to stop at a stop sign by Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx.

The supervisor blew the stop sign and then tried to argue to the police, while the plaintiff lay on the ground with a fractured and deformed ankle, that the women was to blame for the accident. Fortunately, a second pedestrian witnessed the entire accident, confronted the driver as he lied to the police and reported what she saw to the officer. That witness testified at the deposition and exposed the truth.

Although our client will never return to work again, with the help of an economist that explained not only her past but also future earning loss, she will be well taken care of in the future. In addition to her economic loss which amounted to approx 500k, she will receive another $800k for her pain and suffering.

Raphaelson and Levine are proud of our recovery for this client and wish her and her family all the best in the future.

Unfortunately, serious pedestrian accidents occur on New York City roadways, so always use extra caution and keep in mind that even a trained road supervisor like the one that caused this accident, can be distracted from the rules of the road.
