Kreindler Achieves $7.5 Million Settlement on Behalf of the Family of a Boy Killed in Tragic School Bus Crash in Warwick, New York
An empty, out-of-control school bus careened across a parking lot and down a hill injuring several children and killing a 9-year-old boy from the Bronx who was waiting to ride a pony. The victims were part of a school field trip at Masker’s Orchard in Warwick, NY, organized by Nativity Catholic School. According to witness accounts, 4 boys had entered and been playing in the runaway bus and were able to jump out of the moving vehicle prior to it rolling down the hill.
Managing partner Noah Kushlefsky successfully litigated the case which resulted in a $7.5 million settlement.
