    The death of Heather Lough received wide publicity following the tragic day in 2016 when Heather was struck by a commercial truck that ultimately led to her death. Shortly thereafter, the driver was criminally charged with multiple violations of the Vehicle and Traffic Law including NYC’s “right of way” law Section 19-190. After every attempt by the driver to escape criminal liability, including a challenge to the constitutionality of NYC’s right of way law (19-190), the

    Defendant ultimately plead guilty to the charges resulting in payment of a fine and suspension of his license. Using this plea, together with the evidence obtained by the Collision Investigation Squad, our own independent investigation, and the deposition testimony of parties, Cathy Flanzig, Esq. obtained the pre-trial granting of Summary Judgement against the owner of the trucking company and its driver. With liability being established, the case was ultimately settled prior to trial via private mediation between our office and the insurance carrier for the trucking company in the amount of $4,800,000.00.
