$1,500,000 for Woman Hit by NYPD Tow Truck

The Plaintiff, a 33-year-old security guard, was a pedestrian crossing the street on 149th Street between Morris Avenue and Cortlandt Avenue in the Bronx when she was struck by an NYPD tow truck. The tow truck was backing up at the time of the collision.

She sustained non-displaced cervical fractures at C-2, C7 & T-1 that did not require surgery. She also suffered from left knee derangement and a tear of the medial meniscus in her knee requiring surgery. She also sought lost wages as a result of the accident.

This matter was settled prior to trial for $1,500,000.

The case was handled by Daniel P. O'Toole and Frederick C. Aranki.
