By Dean I. Weitzman, Esq. on November 11th, 2016
A driver who suffered serious neck and back injuries when another car ran a red light and struck his vehicle in July 2013 in Charleston, N.Y., is receiving a $1 million settlement after pursuing a personal injury lawsuit.
The driver, Bobby Negron, 40, was driving his wife’s 2009 Mazda automobile on Drumgoole Road in Charleston when the vehicle was struck by a car that ran a red light at the intersection of Bloomington Road about 9 a.m. on July 6, 2013, according to a Nov. 2 story by The Staten Island Advance.
Negron’s vehicle was struck by a vehicle driven by Carol D. Weinberg, the story reported. Negron’s wife, Bonnie, 36, was a passenger in the Mazda at the time of the collision.
Both Bobby Negron and Bonnie Negron were hurt in the crash, the story reported, with Bobby Negron receiving serious neck and back injuries that required neck surgery and kept him out of work.
The Negron’s lawsuit was filed in New York State Supreme Court in St. George against Weinberg, who was driving the vehicle that ran the red light, and Kaback Enterprises Inc., which owned Weinberg’s vehicle, the story stated. The suit was filed in state Supreme Court, St. George.
Bobby Negron received about $970,000 for his injuries, while Bonnie Negron will receive $20,000 for her injuries and about $10,000 for property damage, the story reported. Kaback’s insurance had a $1 million policy limit.
