Delivery Man Catastrophically Injured In MTA Bus Accident

pedestrian accidentBuses provide great public transportation. However, they also cause a number of serious accidents each year. Case in point is yet another accident in New York City involving a bus accident on September 11th near Citi Field in Queens that left a deliveryman critically injured.

The 31-year-old man was carrying an order of Indian food as he rode his moped west on Roosevelt Avenue, at Shea Road around 4:30 p.m. when an MTA bus made a right turn onto Roosevelt and hit him. The bus dragged the victim under the undercarriage of the bus. He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition with head and body trauma. He is expected to survive.

Client Testimonials

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
