Blitz Law Group, LLP Secures $500,000 Settlement in Bicycle Accident Case Against MTA

Blitz Law Group, LLP is proud to announce the successful resolution of our client’s case, for $500,000, for when he was cycling in Manhattan and was hit by a bus. Our client, 55-years old, was riding his bicycle on 26th Street, between Park and Madison Avenue, in August of 2018, when he was struck by a New York City bus operated by the MTA.

Initially, the bus responsible for the collision remained unidentified. However, the Blitz Law Group conducted an extensive investigation and uncovered video footage of the crash from a witness that enabled us to accurately identify the bus and its driver.

Our client suffered severe injuries in the collision, including a rotator cuff tear and a humerus fracture in the shoulder. These injuries necessitated a surgery involving an Open Reduction Internal Fixation procedure, where plates and screws were inserted, and the rotator cuff tear was repaired using fiber-wire technology. 

Blitz Law Group, LLP swiftly filed a lawsuit against the MTA, initiating a multi-year legal battle. Throughout the litigation process, our dedicated attorneys conducted numerous depositions while the defendants consistently denied responsibility for the accident.

As the trial was poised to begin with jury selection, Justin Blitz, achieved a favorable settlement of $500,000. This significant outcome not only provides our client with long-awaited justice but also acknowledges the physical and emotional toll he endured due to the accident. 

Blitz Law Group, LLP remains committed to fighting for the rights of accident victims and securing fair compensation for their suffering.
