$300,000 Settlement

 The driver of the bus testified at his deposition that he did not realize that the plaintiff was injured and drove off.

The plaintiff walked over to another bus stop and took a different bus to the hospital.  The plaintiff was diagnosed with a tear of a ligament in her ankle and initially treated conservatively.  Ten months after the accident, she underwent a surgical procedure to increase the stability of her ankle. 

After the jury was selected and just before opening statements, the case settled with the Transit Authority and the property owner, who was responsible for maintaining the sidewalk.
