$525,000 SETTLEMENT: DISTRACTED PIZZA DELIVERY DRIVER STRIKES PEDESTRIAN

Attorney(s): Trial Attorney Mark Becker

Settlement: $525,000 Settlement

A national pizza chain is famous for delivering hot pizza. On a Friday night, the pizza delivery driver was rushing to deliver a pizza while it was still hot. The driver wasn’t familiar with the delivery location and was busy looking at his phone for directions as he passed through an intersection in the Town of Islip in Suffolk County. Just as the distracted driver was going through the intersection our 35-year-old client was crossing the street and was struck by the car. While our client’s leg was broken in multiple places, we are thankful he did not require surgery to stabilize the fractures. After several weeks of rehabilitation he was able to walk again without the need of crutches or a cane. The case was handled by Trial Attorney Mark Becker. After the case was ready for trial the case was settled for $525,000.
