Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. Concerned Over Increased Accidents on Queensboro Bridge Off-Ramp

Accident AttorneyOn Saturday, May 14, 2011, a Volkswagen car travelling at an excessive speed lost control while exiting the lower-level of the Queensboro Bridge near Crescent Street. The vehicle went airborne and landed on the roof of a livery cab. The driver of the livery cab was able to exit the vehicle just seconds before the Volkswagen landed on the roof. Fortunately, no one involved in this accident suffered serious injuries1.

This marks the third time in a six week span that a car accident has occurred at the off-ramp. The last two accidents ended much more tragically. In April, a driver lost her life when she lost control of her Jetta in the same location and crashed into 2 storefronts. In March, the driver of a Volkswagen Golf had an accident in the same spot, killing a pedestrian and suffering major injuries including an arm amputation1.

After the second accident in April, the Department of Transportation reduced the speed limit on the off-ramp from 30 MPH to 20 MPH and installed speed strips1. However, this clearly was not enough to slow drivers down and prevent another accident. More needs to be done to make the off-ramp safer and easier to maneuver and to make drivers more aware of the dangerous turn.

Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. urges all drivers to exercise extreme caution when driving on this Queensboro Bridge off-ramp. If you have any questions about this story, or if you or a loved one has been the victim of a car accident, contact the experienced law firm of Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. at 800-529-9997.

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
