New York City Transit has been ordered by a jury to pay $7.5 million in damages to two Brooklyn women in a lawsuit arising out of a bus accident. Brenda Whaley and Amanda Wade were riding in a car in Brooklyn in 2005 when a city bus ran a red light and crashed into them. The bus driver claimed the car was at fault, and NYC Transit refused to pay the women. The case was tried and a jury found the bus driver was responsible for the crash.
NYC Transit had a chance to settle the case for $3 million years ago, but refused. Instead, the women had to file suit. The jury awarded them $7.25 million and $250,000, respectively. Herbert L Subin, a lawyer located in New York City, represented the Plaintiffs, and he did a very good job. The agency says it will appeal the verdict.
