Jury Awards $320,000 to Woman With Fractured Ankle
New York injury lawyer Joseph Sullivan recently obtained a $320,000 jury verdict for a Manhattan woman that was hit by a bicyclist while crossing Columbus Avenue in New York City. She was hit by a young man who was riding his bicycle in the wrong direction on Columbus Avenue. Investigation by Sullivan & Brill uncovered a homeowner's insurance policy that covered the bicyclist. The client sustained a fracture of the medial malleolus that was treated with a cast and physical therapy. The insurance company refused to offer more than $75,000 so the case was presented to a jury. The jury returned a verdict finding the bicyclist 100% at fault for the accident, and awarded the client $320,000 for pain and suffering, all of which was covered by the insurance policy.
