Plaintiff was ejected from the front passenger seat of a vehicle that failed to negotiate a curve in the road, resulting in traumatic brain injury, which required extensive hospitalization and rehabilitation.

The Brian O’Connell, Jr. Law Firm initiated a cause of action against the driver of the car and the town where the road was located. The allegations against the township maintained that the road was inadequately signed, in that, it did not contain a curve ahead warning sign with an advisory speed sign, alerting drivers to the safe direction and speed to travel around the subject curve. A traffic engineer ball-banked the curve in question and determined the safe speed for travel to be 20 mph. Because the roadway did not have any speed signs, the traveling public could legally travel upon the road at 55 mph.
