VARCADIPANE & PINNISI RECOVERS $150,000.00 ON BEHALF OF A NEW YORK CITY POLICE OFFICER INJURED IN THE LINE OF DUTY

While on duty, a New York City K-9 Police Officer was injured when he stepped into a portion of a caved-in roadway on the southeast corner of West 41st Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan. The defective portion of the roadway was covered with water and therefore hidden from sight as it was raining heavily at the time of the occurrence. The Officer sustained serious injuries to his ankle and knee and was caused to miss work for a period of time. Dawn M. Pinnisi commenced an action against the City of New York for its failure to repair this cave-in condition, which caused serious personal injuries to the Officer. It was specifically alleged that the City was aware of the cave-in condition prior to the Officer’s accident and neglected to repair it.
