$250,000.00 Settlement for Eleven Year Old Boy Injured by a Fire Truck
On April 5, 2011, the City of New York settled an accident negligence claim by an eleven year old boy whose leg was run over by a Fire Department vehicle for $250,000.00. On August 25th 2006, in Far Rockaway, Queens a Fire Department vehicle negligently ran over the leg of an eleven year old who was tying his shoe at a gas station. Luckily, although the eleven year old suffered serious tissue injury, there we re no fractures and there was a full physical recovery. The infant Plaintiff suffered extensive soft tissue loss on part of his leg which was repaired by a skin graft surgery leaving considerable scaring. Attorney Todd D. Greenberg prepared the case for Trial and was to commence Jury selection when the City of New York offered this substantial settlement. Once again, a client of Addabbo and Greenberg has been fully compensated for serious injuries sustained.
