Thomas A. Morrone of the insurance defense department successfully defended a car vs. pedestrian case for NJCURE Auto Insurance Company before Judge Farrington in Bergen County.  In this liability only trial, there was a dispute as to exactly where the pedestrian plaintiff was attempting to cross the roadway when the accident occurred.  The jury agreed with the defense’s position that the plaintiff was crossing mid-block from between parallel-parked cars, as opposed to in the cross-walk.  Therefore, the jury found that plaintiff was solely responsible for the happening of the accident and the claim against the Firm’s client was dismissed.
