Partners Mark Semeraro and Scott Fahrney have successfully secured a global $2,050,000 settlement on behalf of their client, a non-verbal autistic adult, who was tragically killed while she was walking with her health care aid in a residential neighborhood.
Ms. K (whose identity must remain confidential due to the terms of the settlement agreement), was struck, and run over by a motor vehicle backing out of a driveway. During the accident, Ms. K became trapped and pinned under the vehicle, and ultimately died from her injuries.
Semeraro and Fahrney were instrumental in pursuing both a wrongful death claim for negligent supervision, but also as a products liability claim. The claim was settled globally against three defendants for pain and suffering only as the client was unable to work due to her disability.
Should you or anyone you know incur personal injuries in a motor vehicle accident, or were injured due to a dangerous product or negligent supervision of a professional aide, please contact Semeraro and Fahrney, LLC at 973-775-2290 to discuss your case.
