Haddad Law Obtains $7 Million Jury Verdict for Motorcyclist Injured by Drag Racer
Today, a Middlesex County jury awarded $7 million to a motorcyclist who was severely injured when he was struck by a car that was drag racing at an industrial park in Edison.
As a result of the accident, the driver of the motorcycle lost his right arm and right leg, underwent numerous surgical procedures, and suffered a traumatic brain injury.
The accident occurred, in part, because of the negligent conduct of a corporation that owns a large industrial park in Edison. For nearly a decade, extraordinarily dangerous and hazardous drag racing had taken place on a consistent and widespread basis within the industrial park. The jury found that the owner of the industrial park violated its duty of care by allowing such dangerous activity to occur on its premises completely unchecked.
The jury’s award of $7 million represents compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering that the motorcyclist suffered because of the accident.
