Capozzi and Dietz Obtain $1,075,000 for Bergen County Man Injured in Motor Vehicle Collision

The plaintiff, a 45-year-old man Bergen County resident, was injured as a result of a collision that occurred on January 3, 2018.  Plaintiff was a passenger in a vehicle driven by the defendant when the defendant lost control of the vehicle and crashed.  Prior to the collision plaintiff and defendant were at Oak Ale House, located in Maywood, New Jersey, where the defendant had been served alcohol.  At the time of the collision the defendant had a blood alcohol content of .187%.

As a result of the collision, the plaintiff suffered fractures to his skull and a traumatic brain injury.  In addition, he suffered neck injuries including a C7 spinous process fracture and an odontoid fracture.  He also sustained a fracture of his left femur.  As a result of these injuries, the plaintiff had a posterior fusion at C1-C2 with open reduction internal fixation.  He also underwent rodding of his left femur to repair the injury to his left leg.

The plaintiff recovered $300,000 from the defendant, who was represented by John Mallon from Chasan Leyner & Lamparello prior to mediation.  Following mediation with Judge Paul J. Vichness, the plaintiff recovered $775,000 from Oak Ale House represented by Pasquale A. Pontoriero, for a total of $1,075,000.

This matter was handled by Member Edward P. Capozzi and he was assisted by Associate Corey A. Dietz.
