Injury To Dominant Hand And Wrist
In Nutley v. New York City Transit Authority, the plaintiff suffered an injury to his dominant hand and wrist which required surgery. Despite the surgery, the plaintiff continued to experience pain, numbness, tingling, loss of strength, and loss of motion in his wrist and hand. The Second Department affirmed the jury's award of $300,000 for past pain and suffering and $200,000 for future pain and suffering.
