June 16, 2021
Kozyra & Hartz, LLC congratulates Partner, Michael J. Rankin, in successfully securing a $1.275 million cash settlement for his injured client. Mike’s client was severely injured when she, friends and family were traveling from New York to New Jersey in a shuttle bus owned and operated by a car service/limousine company. The client was standing on the bus with her back to the emergency window when it suddenly opened causing her to fall backwards out of the window and onto the highway. The client sustained numerous injuries that included a traumatic brain injury resulting in loss of her taste and smell senses, as well as lower leg and foot fractures, and extensive scarring throughout her body. Emergent surgical interventions were required following the accident as to her head, leg and foot trauma. Mike vigorously litigated the matter which included successfully opposing defendants’ motions to the trial and appellate courts to bar the testimony of the client’s liability expert. We at Kozyra & Hartz, LLC are extremely happy for the client. This outcome is just another example of the diligent and hard work put into all our matters here at Kozyra & Hartz, LLC. Great job Mike!
