Substantial Settlement for 11 year old Brooklyn Ripper Victim

Three and a half years after a knife attack killed a six year old and left our client,  a seven year old girl, brutally wounded, we were able to obtain a substantial settlement from the  New York City Housing Authority, the amount of which is subject to a confidentiality agreement.  We were prepared to present overwhelming evidence that NYCHA failed to provide any security whatsoever for the building in which plaintiff resided and in fact failed to properly maintain the lock on the front door of our client’s building, which enabled the assailant to enter the building without authority and commit the horrible deed.  The matter was settled on the second day of trial before a jury after the compelling testimony of the plaintiff.
