Our client, an avid motorcyclist, was traveling on two wheels in Queens, when he was thrown from his Harley Davidson due to a large metal construction plate in the roadway. There were no warning signs, and our client was unable to change lanes in traffic. There was no transition paving between the roadway and the plate. Our client suffered a fractured scapula. The City of New York took a ‘no pay’ position blaming the entire accident on our client, until our firm forced them to settle during the trial of this matter for $300,000.00.
