$9,065,720 — NYCTA Bus Accident
HKD represented a home health aide who was seriously injured as a result of the negligence of the New York City Transit Authority. Our client was exiting a NYCTA bus when the bus operator raised the wheelchair ramp causing her to call. The client sustained serious orthopedic injuries requiring a cervical fusion, hip surgery and knee surgery. The jury awarded money for both past and future pain and suffering as well as future medical care. The final judgment after interest and appeals was $9,065,720.88.
