$270,000 Settlement for Pedestrian Struck By CarJuly 1, 2012
Thomas F. Dorn, Jr., Certified Workers’ Compensation and Certified Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey, announces a $270,000 settlement for a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle. The pedestrian was crossing the street in Dover, NJ when she was hit by a car sustaining significant fractures to both legs and developing a blood clot following surgery to her right leg. There were issues of liability due to the fact that both the pedestrian and the driver of the car contended that their light was green. The case was settled following an arbitration in court.
