MORRIS COUNTY – Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman Partner Mark J. Semeraro and associate R. Scott Fahrney have secured a $2.3 million total settlement in a personal injury action on the behalf of their client Stefanida Sloan in the matter Sloan v. Sussex County and Asphalt Paving Systems, Inc., et al.

Mark J. Semeraro Esq.

This lawsuit was filed as a result of a serious head-on collision where Ms. Sloan was struck in her lane of travel, on County Road 565 in Wantage, New Jersey on September 4, 2014.

At that point in time, Ms. Sloan was struck in her lane of travel by uninsured motorist, Matthew Giamanco.  That road had recently undergone micro-resurfacing and the County and its contractors had opened it to the public, without any temporary lines on the road surface and without providing compliant traffic control devices in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

While the contractor and Sussex County argued against any wrongdoing, Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman, LLP retained the appropriate professionals to provide expert testimony that the County and contractor failed to follow the mandates of the MUTCD, and their failure was a contributing factor to the accident and Ms. Sloan’s injuries.

Ultimately, on the eve of arbitration, the Defendants agreed to settle for $2.2 million, without admitting liability.  In addition, Ms. Sloan’s own insurance carrier contributed $100,000.00 in uninsured motorist benefits, for a total settlement of $2.3 million.

If you or anyone you know has suffered serious personal injuries in a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, construction site accident, please contact Mark Semeraro at (973) 585-6254.
