$1.3 Million Settlement for Two Navy Recruits Injured in Crash
A $1.3 million settlement was reached for two young Navy recruits who were both seriously injured when the driver of their vehicle, a Navy recruiter, pulled from a stop sign directly into oncoming traffic just after the recruits took and passed their entrance exam. The crash was severe but liability was disputed as were the injuries. Andy Rossetti handled the case for RD and presented a complex accident reconstruction to the federal Judge during settlement negotiations in order to obtain this large settlement. The reconstruction was convincing and resulted in this large settlement as the opposing driver had very little insurance coverage and if found at fault, would not have had enough coverage to fairly compensate RD’s clients.
