$200,000 Settlement for Automobile AccidentOctober 1, 2012
Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, Denville, NJ, announces a $200,000 settlement for an automobile accident. The plaintiff’s vehicle was broadsided when another vehicle disregarded a red traffic signal. She aggravated a pre-existing degenerative condition on her back for which surgery was required. After a lawsuit was filed, her case proceeded to court arbitration where she was awarded $35,000. Dissatisfied with such a low arbitration award, the plaintiff rejected it and proceeded to trial. Her case was settled prior to trial for $200,000.
