Family of Deceased Pedestrian Successful in Wrongful Death Claim
The Princeton wrongful death lawyers of Lependorf & Silverstein helped the family of a 75-year-old Pennington woman secure a $500,000 settlement. The victim was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident that occurred in Somerset County, New Jersey on Nov. 7, 2013. The woman was a pedestrian waiting to cross the street on the shoulder of Route 518 when the driver of a Toyota Corolla lost control of the vehicle and struck the pedestrian.
She was treated for multiple fractures and severe cognitive deficits. She succumbed to her injuries Dec. 24. The $500,000 settlement represented the full insurance policy limits available to the woman’s estate. The New Jersey State Police investigated this incident and determined that driver inattention was the cause of the accident.
No amount of compensation can replace the life of a loved one, but monetary compensation can go a long way to ease the financial burden of losing a family member tragically and suddenly. That money can go towards medical bills, funeral expenses and lost wages too mention some of the financial burdens families face after the loss of a loved one.
The family of an individual killed in a pedestrian accident may seek financial compensation for medical bills, lost future wages, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, funeral expenses, loss of inheritance and other related damages. If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, please contact our New Jersey wrongful death lawyers to obtain more information about pursuing your legal rights.
