In this motor vehicle accident case, the plaintiff was a passenger on a crowded New York City bus which was traveling southbound on 5th Avenue during rush hour traffic. The bus driver jammed on the brakes abruptly, causing another passenger to fall on the plaintiff’s ankle. As a result, the plaintiff suffered a right ankle fracture requiring surgery. The Personal Injury Attorneys at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein obtained a $300,000 judgment for the plaintiff when the case went to trial.
Joseph L. Ehrlich, Esq., NYC motor vehicle accident lawyer, was able to convince the jury that the NYC bus driver was negligent despite the bus driver’s testimony that he was traveling only 10 miles per hour when he was cut off by a yellow taxi which subsequently fled the scene.
