Our client, a 68-year-old retired machinist for 7-Up, was crossing North Ave. in New Rochelle, NY, when he was struck by the Defendant’s car. Defendant driver was a 78-year-old woman who wore thick glasses. She did not know that she struck our client until after she got out of her car. Eyewitnesses said that Plaintiff was crossing against the light and outside the crosswalk. Our client suffered leg and knee fractures as well as fractured skull, which resulted in a traumatic brain injury. Our client had no memory of the accident. He was placed in a nursing home, where he lived for 2 years until he died. This case settled before trial.
