Fatal Vehicle Accident
Ms. S. was a passenger in a van while being transported to a special facility for routine medical treatment. The minor was autistic. While traveling on Route 80, the van was involved in an accident. As a result Ms. S. died and a wrongful death action was filed by our firm in Superior Court, Bergen County. Due to the requirements of the Supreme Court decision of Green v. Bitner, the emotional stress of the parents was not admissible as evidence at the time of trial. As a result, the defendant offered a settlement of only $125,000 which was rejected. The defendant argued that the autistic child could not contribute economically to the family and therefore the claim must be discounted. We retained an economic expert to place a value on the time which the child would have spent as a companion to her mother and father. The mediator agreed that there should be a value for companionship and valued the claim at $500,000. This amount was paid by the defendant prior to trial.
