Massive collision resulted in life-altering injuries and multiple surgeries for school bus driver

John E. Gregory, Jr., Partner, Keefe Law Firm

Keefe Law Firm today announced that a plaintiff who sustained multiple injuries when the vehicle she was riding in was struck by a delivery van received a $1.5 million settlement under the Honorable Dennis F. Carey, J.S.C.

In early 2017, the plaintiff — a single mother as well as a foster mother, was riding in the front passenger seat of a vehicle that was battered when the driver of a delivery van attempted to make a left hand turn on a red light at an intersection in Wayne, NJ. This caused a massive crash resulting in multiple serious injuries to the plaintiff. These injuries included head trauma, fractures of the knee, tibia, ankle, sternum and both wrists. Due to this, the plaintiff, a school bus driver, was unable to work for an extended period of time. She is the primary financial provider for her children.

John E. Gregory, Keefe Law Firm partner and Certified Civil Trial Attorney represented the plaintiff. The Honorable Dennis F. Carey, J.S.C. managed this contested, consolidated case and the attendant settlement efforts among the parties.
