Salop v. City of New York – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In Salop v. City of New York, 246 AD2d 305, 667 N.Y.S.2d 345 (1st Dept 1998), the plaintiff had the same injury and the same surgical repair as plaintiff in the instant case; the only difference was that in Salop, the plaintiff was found to have atrophy which was expected to worsen over time.

In that case the First Department found that the award of two hundred thirty thousand dollars for past pain and suffering and four hundred and ninety thousand dollars for future pain and suffering did not deviate materially from what is reasonable compensation.
