$815,000.00 Jury Verdict

Congratulations to Ivan Rodriguez for obtaining a $817,000.00 jury verdict for a teenage girl who had been a passenger in a mini-school bus involved in an intersection accident with another vehicle and sustained a fractured leg.

The school bus driver denied responsibility for the accident claiming that the accident occurred when an unidentified car cut her off causing her to swerve and collide with another vehicle. The defense attorneys acknowledged the plaintiff’s leg injury but claimed that any monetary award should be limited because the plaintiff made a full recovery from her injuries.

At trial we were able to demonstrate that the mini-school bus driver was fully responsible for the accident and that the plaintiff continued to have residual symptoms as a result of her leg injury. The Manhattan jury found in our favor and awarded our client a total of $815,000.00 for her injuries.
