Good vs. Castro, number 8 of the State's largest settlements last year, settled in the amount of $2,250,000. This case found that a bus swerved into the lane of an oncoming van resulting in a collision. Litigation discovery eventually revealed that the Defendant had eight previous accidents.
Lauvanis vs. Port Authority of New York, number 15 on the list, settled for $1,225,000 for injuries the plaintiff sustained while working as a signal person for a shipping company at its facility at Newark International Airport.
