$1,500,000 Settlement During Trial for NYCTA Bus Collision

Plantiff Injured While Passenger on Bus, When Two Buses Collided

WRSH Partner, Kenneth J. Halperin and attorney Bryce Moses recently obtained a $1,500,000 settlement for a 36-year-old man who was injured when two NYCTA buses collided. At the time of the accident plaintiff was a passenger on a NYCTA bus, when one NYCTA bus struck another in the rear. Immediately, after receiving an answer Kenneth J. Halperin and Bryce Moses, moved for summary judgment, wherein the Court was asked to hold the NYCTA liable for the accident. While it was obvious that the NYCTA was liable, since two of their buses were involved in the accident, by moving for this relief at the outset of the litigation interest on any future judgment began to run immediately.

As a result of the accident, the plaintiff sustained a herniated lumbar disc that required surgery. There were no lost earnings incurred as a result of the accident. The NYCTA argued that this was a low speed collision and there was virtually no damage to the bus. They argued that plaintiff had pre-existing degeneration in his spine that caused his need for surgery. Shortly after the commencement of the trial, attorney Bryce Moses was able to obtain a very favorable settlement for the WRSH plaintiff.
