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, P.C., Denville, NJ, announces a $430,000 settlement, in which each participant received $215,000, for injuries sustained in car accident. The plaintiff and his girlfriend were involved in an automobile accident on October 1, 2012. The plaintiff was using a vehicle owned by his mother with permission; his girlfriend was a passenger in the front seat. At the intersection of South Morris Street and Quaker Church Road in Randolph, NJ, a vehicle traveling eastbound on Quaker Church Road disregarded a stop sign and t-boned the plaintiff’s vehicle on the driver side with great force. As a result of the accident, both the plaintiff and his girlfriend sustained a disc herniation in their lower backs for which they each underwent posterior lumbar discectomy and fusion surgery after conservative care and treatment failed to relieve their pain. Prior to trial both the plaintiff and his girlfriend separately received $215,000.00 each to settle their case.
