$130,000 Settlement for Workers’ Compensation Case

July 1, 2013

Denville, NJ

Thomas F. Dorn, Jr., Certified Workers’ Compensation and Certified Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey, announces a $130,000 Settlement for a Workers’ Compensation/Personal Injury Hybrid case. The Plaintiff worked for the State of New Jersey when she was struck by a drunk driver at a red light. The plaintiff’s medical bills were paid through workers’ compensation insurance. However, the injuries to her back were extensive; injuring her entire spine with findings of disc herniations in her neck, mid and lower back areas. One of the plaintiff’s treating doctors advised her that she may need low back surgery in the future. The defendant unsuccessfully claimed that plaintiff’s three prior accidents were the cause of the plaintiff’s spine problems. The case settled at conference with a retired judge for $130,000.00.
