Jeffrey v. State

New Jersey Appellate Division

May 18, 2021

In Jeffrey v. State, the plaintiff appealed from the order denying his motion for leave to file a late notice of claim pursuant to the New Jersey Tort Claims Act. The plaintiff argued the motion judge abused his discretion when he found the plaintiff did not engage in the necessary due diligence to discover the identities of the public entities involved in his medical treatment and the emergency medical technicians who might have exacerbated his injuries by improperly placing him in the ambulance that took him from the scene of the accident to the hospital. The New Jersey Appellate Division reversed, holding that the motion judge failed to “duly appreciate the magnitude of plaintiff’s injuries and their life-altering ramifications.”
