A NYC bus driver told the police he struck our client’s vehicle in the rear because it suddenly stopped short. The bus camera footage we obtained told a different story. Our clients claimed they were stopped at a traffic light and when the light turned green, a NYC bus behind them struck them in the rear. The bus driver told his supervisor and the police that our client made a sudden stop. BBNR obtained the bus camera footage which revealed the truth.
Our clients were stopped at the traffic light for about a minute and when the light turned green, the bus driver struck them before they even had a chance to move.
We made a motion asking the court to find that the defendant at fault for the accident as a matter of law. The court in a written decision agreed and granted our relief.
By obtaining this decision, our clients will now receive 9% interest on the jury award from the date of the decision until the verdict on damages.
It can take several years to obtain a jury trial in the Bronx which is unfortunate. However, our clients will now be entitled to 9% interest during that waiting period.
If a case can be won before a judge as a matter of law even before a jury is selected, it should always done. At BBNR, we promptly makes these motions to help our clients.
