John Molinari represented a 21-year-old man who was struck at a pedestrian crossing Rahway Avenue, in Union Township, New Jersey. The time of the accident was approximately 7:00 P.M., on a week night in early January. Our client had left work in the area and was crossing the roadway to get to the parking lot where he had parked his vehicle when he was struck by the defendant vehicle. He sustained multiple fractures and a traumatic brain injury that resulted in cognitive and neuropsychological impairment. Despite difficulties with the case including a police report confirming that the plaintiff was wearing dark clothing, was crossing in the darkest area of the roadway, and that the accident was not at an intersection, John was able to secure a settlement in the amount of $450,000.
