On May 26, 2006, Veena Sadhwani, then 77 years old, was struck by a bus making a left turn onto Third Avenue from 32nd Street in New York City. The bus driver never saw her before impact which he said took place about 1/3 of the way through the pedestrian cross-walk.

Mrs. Sadhwani was so brain damaged by the time she brought a lawsuit for her injuries that her pre-trial testimony as to exactly where she was that day was wildly inconsistent. After neurologists for both sides testified and the judge heard some limited testimony from her, the plaintiff’s presence on the witness stand was excused and the liability aspect of the trial went ahead with just the bus driver and accident reconstruction experts (no one else witnessed the accident). The jury returned a verdict finding the bus driver 100% at fault.
