Thomas F. Dorn Jr. Esq., Certified Workers’ Compensation and Certified Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey, announces a $45,000 settlement for a motor vehicle accident. The plaintiff was injured when another car went through a stop sign and struck his car. The plaintiff injured his neck, shoulder, and knees. He was diagnosed with a disc herniation in his neck and had to undergo knee and shoulder surgery. Prior to a court arbitration hearing, the claim against the other driver settled for $45,000. Based upon the policy limits of the other driver, the plaintiff is now pursuing additional funds against his own automobile insurance company since the other driver was under-insured.
