$245,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle AccidentApril 1, 2016
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, PC in Denville, NJ, announces a $245,000.00 settlement for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
Plaintiff is a 26 year old female. In January 2012, she was stopped in traffic and was struck in the rear by another vehicle. There was little damage to the rear of her vehicle, but she sustained injury to her back. After extensive conservative treatment and injection therapy, she underwent a failed microdiscectomy. Eventually, the Plaintiff realized the attorney who was representing her and the doctor who had operated on her was not adequate, she retained this firm to represent her. She was directed to a top neurosurgeon who performed a revision and fusion surgery on her lower back to correct her condition as a result of the failed microdiscectomy. The defendant had a $250,000 policy limit and prior to a scheduled arbitration hearing, the case settled for $245,000.
