$275,000 for passenger after Sanitation Truck Crushes Jeep Seriously Injuring All Occupants

$275,000 Settlement for Woman Who Tripped and Fell on a Broken Sidewalk

Schulman Blitz, LLP’s client was a passenger in her friend’s jeep when a New York City Department of Sanitation truck made a left turn in front of their Jeep which was proceeding straight through a Brooklyn intersection, causing a devastating collision.As a result of the crash, our client suffered a concussion, severe facial lacerations, and a fracture to her wrist.

Our client also suffered a carpal tunnel injury to her wrist which required surgery. Carpal Tunnel release surgery is done with an endoscope, a thin flexible tube with a camera attached.


The endoscope is guided through a small incision made at either the wrist or palm. The endoscope allows the doctor to see the transverse carpal ligament which is then cut, releasing pressure on the median nerve, relieving carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms.


After many years of litigation, on the eve of trial, Justin Blitz, Esq. settled our client’s case for $275,000.
