Over $3 Million Settlement Reached for Pedestrian Injured in Manhattan Crosswalk Collision

A settlement in excess of three million dollars was secured for a 34-year-old woman who was struck and run over by a van while crossing the street in Manhattan.  A construction trailer had been placed near the crosswalk which created a blind spot for drivers and pedestrians.  A “cross here” sign had directed the woman into the crosswalk where she was struck.   As a result of being run over, the woman suffered multiple injuries which required surgery and rehabilitation.  Defendants denied responsibility and argued that the placement of their construction trailer and “cross here” sign did not make the crossing dangerous.  Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. demonstrated that the trailer violated the New York City Highway Rules because it was placed too close to the intersection and crosswalk and that the sign continued to be used to despite the hazardous placement and presence of the trailer.  The case resolved while motions for summary judgment were pending.
