Access-A-Ride Pays GLK Client $5M to Settle a Pedestrian Accident Case

Catastrophic Pedestrian AccidentA 42-year-old lawyer was struck by an Access-A-Ride vehicle while in the crosswalk in Manhattan. The victim suffered a traumatic brain injury and an exacerbation of psychological issues. The victim and his family hired Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. to seek justice. The firm and their experienced trial attorneys put up a strong fight. Amongst other litigation tactics, they retained nationally recognized experts in the field of biomechanics and brain injury to prove their case.

The defendants fought the case for 6 years but eventually admitted defeat. The case finally settled with the owner of the vehicle, Metropolitan Transit Authority and the company operating the vehicle, Empire Paratransit, for $5 million prior to opening statements in court.

Access-A-Ride is a Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) program that provides disabled individuals who are unable to use public subways or buses with transportation services. While Access-A-Ride aims to help some of New York’s neediest citizens, it has often fallen short according to recent audits of the service.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
