Pedestrian Knockdown $975,000 Recovery

79-year-old Plaintiff Struck by Bus While Crossing the Roadway

The 79-year-old plaintiff had nearly completed crossing the roadway when she was struck by the defendant bus which was turning left from behind her. The plaintiff suffered a subdural hematoma, a subarachnoid hemorrhage and a mild traumatic brain injury that caused significant cognitive deficits involving memory and concentration. This traumatic brain injury also caused a permanent loss of smell and associated reduction in taste. The plaintiff left the scene by ambulance and was taken to the hospital where she was admitted for two weeks and three days. The plaintiff missed approximately two months from work. She contended that although she returned, she has had great difficulties functioning. Her traumatic brain injury has caused significant memory and concentration deficits which were confirmed by a battery of neuropsychological testing and continue to date.

The case settled prior to trial at mediation for $975,000 by Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro attorneys, Clifford H. Shapiro and Michael J. Fitzpatrick
