Pedestrian Accidents: Accidents can happen in places where we least expect. We all know we are at higher risk of being involved in an accident when we are on a congested highway, crossing a busy street or walking on the sidewalk. However, accidents can occur where we least expect them. Recently, Peter Chamas of Gill and Chamas in Woodbridge recovered a $1.25 million settlement in Monmouth County for the family of a man who was killed as a result of being struck by a car. The plaintiff was at a Wendy’s when a car struck the building. The vehicle drove through the building, pinning the plaintiff against the wall.
As a result of the accident, the plaintiff suffered a brain injury and multiple fractures. He was kept on a ventilator until passing away approximately 3 weeks after the accident. The defense counsel argued that the accident was caused by mechanical error and not driver error. They also argued that the plaintiff experienced no conscience suffering after the accident.
