$100,000 Settlement for Rear End CollisionApril 1, 2013
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 rear end collision. The plaintiff, who was approximately 42 years of age in March 2011, was traveling approximately 55 MPH on Route 80 West. While traveling at that speed he was struck in the rear by another vehicle that was traveling faster than the plaintiff was driving. The defendant was intoxicated at the time of the accident. The plaintiff sustained neck and back injuries and after conservative therapy and injections failed, underwent lumbar diskectomy and fusion surgery for a herniated disc at L3-4. The amount of insurance was limited with respect to his injury and for this fact alone the case was settled prior to trial for the $100,000.00 policy limit of the defendant.
