Pedestrian Struck by Taxi Making an Unsafe Turn
WRSMH was able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $275,000 on behalf of the plaintiff, a thirty-nine year old man from Kings County, NY. The man was walking across the street when a yellow taxi cab made an unsafe turn and struck him, causing a serious collision. As a result of the accident, our client suffered injuries to his arm and elbow which required surgery. After several days of trial, the firm was able to settle the case for the amount of $275,000, which was almost three times the amount of the defendants’ available insurance coverage.
