Kenneth Elwood represented a 13-year-old boy who was riding his bicycle across State Highway 35 in Lavallette. An 80 y/o motorist, who did not see the boy, struck him and dragged him over 100 feet. The boy sustained fractures to his sacrum and injuries to the sciatic nerve, which resulted in a leg length discrepancy. In addition, he suffered significant deep tissue injuries to his leg and buttocks requiring surgery and skin grafting, and resulting in permanent scarring.
