$500,000 (policy limits) Settlement/Verdict for Auto Accident Death

My client was an off-duty police officer who was killed in a collision with a truck driver who made a left turn in front of her from the opposite direction on a major thoroughfare in Suffolk County. Both vehicles had a steady green light. An action was brought against the State of New York (the owner of the roadway with a duty to maintain it) for failing to place the proper traffic control signal at the intersection where the accident occurred. We alleged that this intersection required a restricted left turn arrow signal which would have eliminated the truck driver’s decision to make his turn. Unfortunately, the Court of Claims Judge was not convinced that the State violated any duty to the plaintiff and was not negligent for failing to change or modify that traffic light. The case settled with the truck driver for the full policy limits.
