$5,000,000 settlement at trial for brain injured victim

In this motor vehicle accident, a young 12 year old girl attempted to cross the street against a red light and was struck by a “hit and run” vehicle, suffering a severe head injury resulting in a short term coma and long term cognitive issues. Unfortunately, there were few direct witnesses to the accident. A comprehensive investigation led to a City owned DEP truck as the culprit, although the City denied its involvement. The City moved for Summary Judgment to dismiss the case, but MSG defeated the motion. On the eve of trial, the City offered this significant settlement to compensate our young client.
