Our client was a passenger in a yellow cab when the driver lost control and struck a parked vehicle. As a result of the heavy impact, our client’s face struck the plexiglass divider of the taxi, which caused her to sustain a fractured nasal bone and a deviated nasal septum.
At the time of the accident, our client was an aspiring opera singer who was pursuing her Masters Degree at the Manhattan School of Music. After the accident, she began to have voice difficulties which affected her singing. Thomas Schiro, Esq. and Fred Schulman, Esq. settled our client’s case at a mediation with the insurance company for the taxi cab for a confidential amount.
