Jury Awards $225,000 to Woman Injured When Car Crashed Into Wall of Her Bronx House


Posted on Jun 18, 2009

Following a trial at which the plaintiff testified that she suffered serious personal injuries, including a tear in her shoulder, as well as a herniated disc when the defendant's car crashed through the bedroom wall of her house in Bronx County, New York, the jury concluded that the defendant had been negligent in the manner in which she drove her car, and did not accept the defendant's assertion that her car was defective, and had - without warning - malfunctioned.  Although the jury awarded the plaintiff $225,000 in damages, the parties agreed to settle the case for $100,000.
