The Dervishi Law Group obtained a $3,295,582 verdict against the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) on behalf of a 74-year-old Albanian janitor who slipped and fell down an outdoor subway stairway during a rainstorm at the Rockefeller Center subway station in Manhattan. Plaintiff, a Local 32BJ cleaner, was on his way to work at 1185 Sixth Avenue, when he slipped and fell on a step with a loose metal plate and a downward slope. The accident was not reported to the NYCTA. Nonetheless, based on his prior testimony, the NYCTA maintained that the Plaintiff, who testified through an Albanian interpreter, was not holding the handrail, stepped on something “soft” and was rushing to get to work. Although the radiology reports of his first three medical providers indicated that his cervical vertebrae fracture was “old” and “chronic,” his surgeon clarified that the clinical diagnosis and intra-operative findings demonstrated an acute injury. The jury awarded him $350,000 in past medical expenses, $240,000 in past lost earnings, $1,200,000 in past pain and suffering, $255,582 in future medical expenses, $250,000 in future lost earnings and $1,000,000 in future pain and suffering, with no comparative fault.
