Attorney(s):Thomas A. Moore
Practice Area(s):Medical Malpractice
Summary:A New York Times reporter, Neil MacFarquhar, turned to Thomas Moore to be his attorney for a personal-injury claim. Mr. MacFarquhar was hit by an "out-of-control bus whose driver may have suffered an epileptic seizure," New York Magazine reported.

"We filed a notice of claim," said Mr. Moore. "The fact is that Neil has gone through a terrible ordeal and-despite the best of hopes and aspirations-will have this with him for the rest of his life." After the accident, the Times reporter needed five operations and had to be hospitalized for four months. "As a New Yorker," Mr. MacFarquhar said, "I ought to be able to ride my bike or walk down the street without worrying that the next bus that comes along is an unguided missile."
