In 2016, Greenberg P.C. negotiated a $500,000 settlement on behalf of a client injured in a collision between a tractor-trailer truck and a school bus that occurred in June 2013 on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
The client, Cheryl Hall, a 53-year old school bus matron, was riding in the school bus, which was traveling on the eastbound side of the BQE near the Tillary Street interchange. The truck, also traveling eastbound, initiated the collision while attempting to merge into the same lane as the bus. As a result, the truck sideswiped the bus, which subsequently crashed into a concrete barrier and caused injuries to the client’s back, a knee, neck, and shoulders. The client was eventually treated at a local hospital, and, over the next several years, received various treatments, including multiple surgeries, for her injuries.
Hall filed a lawsuit against the truck driver and Gree Transport Inc. (the owner of the driver’s vehicle), alleging that the driver was negligent in operating the vehicle and that the trucking company was vicariously liable for her injuries.
After a trial was initiated in Kings County Supreme Court, Alan M. Greenberg, Esq. negotiated a $500,000 settlement on behalf of the client.
