Denville, NJ

Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, P.C., Denville, NJ, announces a $299,000 settlement for injuries caused by being hit by a car. The plaintiff was a high school senior walking home from school on the sidewalk. A vehicle, owned by a wealthy woman and given to her son to placate him as a result of a bitter divorce, was being operated at a high rate of speed and in a reckless manner. The car jumped the curb and struck the plaintiff from behind knocking her through a fence. The accident shattered the plaintiff’s leg, requiring open reduction and internal fixation, with an intermedullary rod. The plaintiff, an accomplished dancer, lost her dance scholarship as a result of the accident. The defendant possessed a $300,000.00 combined single limit policy and $299,000.00 of it remained after a $1,000.00 was paid by New Jersey Manufacturers for the fence through which the plaintiff was catapulted. The case was settled for the policy limit balance of $299,000.00 shortly after the initiation of a lawsuit.
