Ross Feller Casey founding partner Joel J. Feller has filed a major wrongful death lawsuit in New Jersey on behalf of the family of a 22-year-old man who was tragically killed in a car accident caused by a driver who blew through a red light.

The suit, among other things, alleges that the defendant, Raymond Blinn, 74, demonstrated “negligent, egregious and reckless conduct” when he drove through a red light on Route 206 in Bordentown Township, N.J. in the morning of June 4, 2015 and struck a car driven by Joseph Fannell. Fannell died the next day of injuries sustained in the crash.

"Mr. Blinn's conduct is beyond simple negligence and demonstrated indifference to the safely and welfare of other motorists, specifically Joseph Fannell," Feller told The Times of Trenton newspaper, which ran a front-page story today about the lawsuit. Feller also told the paper that the Fannell family, through the civil justice system, is now focused on holding Blinn fully accountable for both compensatory and punitive damages in the death. Read the story
