NJ Personal Injury Attorneys Help 12 Year Old Accident Victim Recover Damages


In Hudson County NJ, lawyers for a 12 year old boy helped his family recover $1.5 million in damages after the young boy was struck by a large truck while riding his bicycle on Routes 1 and 9 in Jersey City. The injured boy maintained that the defendant failed to make adequate observations of the road.

New Jersey Injury attorneys, Cerussi and Gunn, represented the young boy who suffered a severe brachial plexus injury which will permanently leave him with extensive paralysis and complete loss of use of his left, non-dominant arm.

The plaintiff and the defendant both had very different accounts of what took place on the evening of the accident. The plaintiff maintained that he was riding in close proximity to the curb because there was no shoulder. He also maintained that the road was well lit.

The defendant had denied that the plaintiff’s version that he was struck while riding his bike with traffic in close proximity to the curb. The defendant argued the plaintiff had, in fact, stopped under an overpass while straddling the left and right northbound lanes, preventing the defendant from observing him in time to avoid the accident.

The case was ultimately settled prior to trial in favor of the plaintiff for $1.5 million.
