British Woman Loses Her Leg after Cab Collides with Her
A British tourist lost her leg in August after a taxi cab collided with her. The collision occurred in New York, and the cab driver was at fault. At the scene a fellow pedestrian had to use his belt a tourniquet to save the woman's life. The woman plans to file suit against New York because the driver of the cab had enough points against his license to automatically suspend the cab driver's license. However, the cab drive kept his license because of a computer glitch. According to the woman' lawyer, the soon to be plaintiff will seek over $20 million from New York. The plaintiff has also went after the cab company and the driver.
It is unknown exactly what caused the computer glitch that led to this particular cab driver keeping his license after racking up the requisite amount of points for a suspension. However, discovery may reveal the answer to this question. Even if the plaintiff fails to find the source of this mistake, her case has merit against New York. This assumption presumes sovereign immunity will not apply in this case.
