A 69-year-old woman was run over by a New York City bus and killed. She was crossing the street on a crosswalk when the bus ran into her and rolled over her causing the back wheel to run over her head. The bus driver was apparently unaware he had hit anyone and left the scene of the accident.
The loss of a loved one through the reckless or negligent actions of another person is devastating. Not only have you lost your loved one, but also the death was needless and could have been avoided had the individual involved not been negligent. If you have lost a loved one under such circumstances, it is crucial that you immediately contact a Martin County wrongful death attorney to assist you in your claim for compensation.
There were no witnesses to the accident so an expert on accident reconstruction testified about how the accident may have occurred and that the woman was free from any negligence. The jury found the bus driver 100% at fault for the death and awarded the woman's family $800,000.
