While towing a log splitter behind a pick-up truck, the driver wanted to make sure the tail lights were working properly so he pulled off Route 17 in Upper Saddle River, NJ, into a service station. After parking in the service station, the pick-up truck driver got out and walked to the back of his truck. Just as he did so another driver entered the service station and rather than apply his breaks, he accidentally hit the gas and ran over our client, the pick-up driver. Our 58-year-old client suffered from broken bones to his lower leg that ultimately required surgery. The car that hit him had only $100,000 of insurance, which was offered. We then pursued a claim against our client’s own insurance and we were able to recover an additional $325,000. The case was handled by Trial Partner Ron Rosenkranz.
