$225,000 Settlement for Torn Earlobe in Motorcycle Accident Caused by a Police Car in the Bronx
A police car in the Bronx made a sudden left turn in front of a 19 year-old motorcyclist and crashed into his motorcycle. The impact of the crash threw the driver of the motorcycle over the roof of the police car, ripping his ear on the lights situated on the top of the police car. Attorney Schlitt assembled a team of experts to help prove the case. The City of New York pressed ahead to trial, but after hearing Attorney Schlitt’s case and her summation to the jury, the City agreed to settle the case while the jury was deliberating. The City of New York paid $225,000 for the torn earlobe.
