Motor Vehicle Accident & Municipal Liability – Vehicle vs. Bicyclist – Elbow Injuries & PTSD – $900,000
The plaintiff, a bicyclist, was involved in a motor vehicle accident with a NYC Parks Department vehicle that was making a turn. The plaintiff sustained a fracture to her left arm that ultimately required arthroscopic surgery involving her left elbow and tendons. The plaintiff also suffered from post-traumatic distress disorder following the collision. HKD partner Judd F. Kleeger resolved the case for $900,000 during the discovery phase of litigation.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
