A couple in their sixties were seriously injured, and the husband’s stepmother killed as a result of a collision where a driver struck their vehicle while making a lefthand turn. The three victims were leaving a restaurant after an early dinner when their car collided with the vehicle that was turning left, causing them to hit the base of a traffic signal. The 19-year-old driver of that vehicle was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way. Following the collision, all three victims were trapped in their vehicle for 30 minutes until emergency responders could extract them from the vechicle. All sustained multiple, critical injuries which resulted in the husband’s stepmother dying due to blunt force trauma. The couple suffered from rib and ankle fractures, requiring hospitalization and physical therapy. Daniel M. Hodes of Hodes Milman, LLP represented the husband and wife, and the estate of the decedent but not her heirs. Mediation resulted in a $871,919 settlement.
