Our client was struck by a New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) bus attempting to make a right turn through a crosswalk. Our client was in the crosswalk and walking with the walk sign, with the right of way. From the outset it was reported by the NYPD that our client was in the crosswalk and had the right of way. The Bus Operator was even given a Right of Way Violation.
We brought a lawsuit in Queens Supreme Court seeking compensation for the serious spinal injuries our client sustained. She was required to undergo an extensive surgery called a fusion.
The New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) and the bus operator inexplicably changed their story and now, despite the overwhelming evidence, argued that our client was out of the crosswalk and walked into a stopped bus.
Our New York bus accident lawyers brought a motion to the court seeking summary judgment, a finding that NYCTA and the bus operator were completely at fault and our client completely free of fault.
We sought a court order disposing of this fabricated defense.
The result, justice delivered and delivered loudly.
The court agreed and determined that the bus operator's new “story” was just that and granted summary judgment to our client. The court agreed that the NYCTA and the bus operator were 100-percent at fault and our client free of fault.
Partner Andrew Levine handled the matter and drafted the winning motion.
