A 21-year-old restaurant worker crossing the street at night was struck and killed by an NYC Transit Authority bus making a left turn through an intersection. Our firm undertook the representation of his estate and brought an action for wrongful death and pain and suffering. The law imposes liability on a vehicle turning through an intersection because pedestrians have the right of way. However, the bus company argued that the worker was not crossing in the crosswalk as required by law. By obtaining a surveillance video from a nearby building the firm was able to demonstrate at trial that the worker was in the crosswalk and that the bus was going at an excessive rate of speed. A settlement of $1,150,000 was obtained at trial for the victim’s pain and suffering and for compensation to his family.
