A pedestrian who suffered multiple fractures when he was hit by a vehicle while crossing a street in Jersey City agreed to a $675,000 settlement in his Hudson County suit, Rojas v. Openner, in February.

Jose Rojas, now 33, was crossing Barrow Street in a crosswalk on Nov. 19, 2018, when he was struck and knocked down by a vehicle, driven by Guido Openner and owned by Daklapak USA of Moonachie, that was turning left onto Barrow from York Street, said Joseph Marabondo of Eichen, Crutchlow & Zaslow in Edison, who represented the plaintiff with the firm’s Barry Eichen. Rojas claimed Openner disregarded a stop sign, although Openner disputed that claim and said Rojas walked into the path of his vehicle, also contending that lighting in the area made it difficult for him to see the pedestrian, according to Marabondo.
