$100,000 Settlement for Injury due to Rear-end CollisionSeptember 1, 2015
Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., Chair of the Personal Injury Department and Certified Civil Trial Attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, P.C., Denville, NJ, announces a $100,000 settlement for injury due to a rear-end collision.
Plaintiff was sixty-three (63) years old at the time of this accident on November 25, 2013. She was slowing down for traffic while traveling in the left eastbound lane of Route 78 in Reading Township, New Jersey. At that time, she was struck in the rear by another vehicle who failed to observe traffic conditions. As a result of the accident, she underwent lumbar spine open reduction and internal fixation surgery involving decompressive discectomy at L4-5 with interbody fusion at L4-5 , with a two-piece structural allograft. The defendant had a $100,000.00 policy limit applicable to bodily injury for the happening of the accident. Plaintiff’s case was worth far in excess of $100,000.00, but the most amount of insurance that was collectible on her case was that figure which she received relatively quickly after litigation was initiated.
