Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, Denville, NJ, announces a $100,000 settlement for an commercial automobile accident. The plaintiff was a passenger in a vehicle when a commercial vehicle pulled directly out of parking lot in front of the vehicle he was sitting. As a result of the accident, he had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder and aggravated a pre-existing herniated disc in his neck and back, which required some injection therapy. Despite his extensive medical past for numerous unrelated injuries, his case was settled by the carrier for the commercial vehicle for the amount of $100,000 three days prior to trial.
