$2.5 Million for man involved in Parsippany car accident

A Morris County jury has awarded $2.5 million in compensation to a classical pianist from New York who suffered an elbow injury in a crash in Parsippany and can no longer play at the high level he had mastered.

The jury that heard the negligence/personal injury case before Superior Court Judge David Ironson in Morristown earlier this month voted 6-1 to award William J. Finizio Jr., 47, of New York City $2.5 million as reasonable compensation for his pain and suffering, disability, impairment and loss of enjoyment of life as it related to an injury to his left elbow.

Finizio was involved in a two-vehicle accident in Parsippany on Nov. 20, 2011 around 5:30 p.m. on Route 80.  According to court records, Finizio told police he was driving west down a single lane when Lumbarda’s vehicle came out from between barrels in a construction area and struck his vehicle. Lumbarda told police he was in front of Finizio’s car in a middle lane but unclear where he was due to construction work. He stated he went left to switch lanes to get into the single lane when Finizio tried to pass him and struck his vehicle.
