$235,000 Settlement for Pedestrian Struck by Vehicle
- Date: Summer 2014
- Attorney: John E. Molinari
- Settlement: $235,000
- Practice Areas: Motor Vehicle Accident, Pedestrian Accident
Mr. Molinari represented a 44-year-old man who was walking in a parking lot in Fairview, New Jersey when a car backing out of a parking space ran over his foot causing it to twist and suffer leg injuries. He sustained a depressed complex comminuted fracture of the lateral tibial plateau of the right knee requiring open reduction and internal fixation surgery. However, our client had a favorable result from the surgical procedure. The defendant claimed that plaintiff walked into the side of the car as it was backing out and that he was therefore responsible for his own injuries.
