February 4, 2011, a $400,000 settlement was reached on behalf of an 11-year-old pedestrian Plaintiff who was struck by a motor vehicle while crossing a Brooklyn intersection during his walk home from school. The settlement was successfully reached despite the Defendant motorist maintaining that the infant Plaintiff ran across the street without the right of way, and despite the fact that the infant healed well from his injuries over time. The settlement will be held in trust by the infant Plaintiff’s family until he reaches the age of majority.
