Christopher Sallay, a partner at NYC Personal Injury Law Firm Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf is representing Juan Rosario who lost his wife and two children in a car accident in which a van plunged of the Bronx River Parkway viaduct into an unoccupied part of the Bronx Zoo.
According to an article published today by the New York Post, this particular section of the Bronx River Parkway is the most dangerous and expensive stretch of road in the city and 16 people died in accidents at this spot. The city already paid an $11.5 million settlement last year for a fatal crash that happened in 2006.
More lawsuits are underway, including the one handled by Chris. Chris was quoted in the article saying the Jersey barriers – finally installed two weeks later – “could have prevented this, it’s that simple,”.
