$240,000 For Pedestrian Struck In Crosswalk

Schulman Blitz, LLP’s client, who at the time of her accident was a a nurse at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, was crossing Richmond Avenue at the intersection of Leo Street in Staten Island when she was struck by a car that was making a left turn. She sustained several injuries, including a severe injury to her knee, consisting of a torn medial meniscus and an anterior cruciate ligament deficiency.

As a result of these injuries, our client required surgery, consisting of an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction utilizing a patellar tendonautograft, as well as a medial meniscectomy. The surgery required insertion of metallic screws into our client’s knee.

Because her injuries caused her to undergo such an extensive surgery, our client had to miss over a year of work. Schulman Blitz, LLP made a motion for summary judgment to have the court determine, as a matter of law, that because our client was in the crosswalk at the time, the collision was completely the fault of the driver of the car. In addition, the motion sought a determination by the court that our client sustained injuries that met New York State’s “serious injury threshold” for automobile cases.

While the motion was pending, Fred Schulman, Esq. settled the case with the insurance company for the car for $240,000.
