Bronx (NYC): Premises Liability – $2 Million Award To Tollbooth Employee

A Bronx (NYC) jury recently awarded $2,106,874 to an employee of the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority who suffered a fractured ankle when he fell at a tollbooth plaza of New York’s Bronx Whitestone Bridge. The plaintiff fell on a pothole that was recently repaired in a lane that was designated for trucks.

The plaintiff alleged that the TBTA improperly allowed trucks to use the lane that was just repaired, causing the hole to reopen. The defense argued that the defect was not “significant.” However, the incident was memorialized on video and the Bronx jury sided with the plaintiff.
