A 43-year-old construction worker has settled a construction injury lawsuit against New York City for $6.3 million.
In January, approximately 80 people were injured when a commuter ferry crashed into Pier 11 at South Street and Gouverneur Lane. Many suffered significant harm, including lacerations, knee injuries, deep bruising and torn shoulder cartilage.
This past week, I had the opportunity to settle a case on behalf of one of our clients. The client was a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle in Brooklyn, while crossing the street. Our client suffered a broken arm which required surgery and plates and screws to fix. I settled the case for the full limits of the driver's insurance policy.
Recently, we obtained a settlement of over $100,000 for person who was injured in a rear end collision auto accident. As his car was being struck, our client put out his arm to brace his pregnant wife, who was sitting next to him.
