$92,500 Settlement for Automobile Accident

April 1, 2013

Denville, NJ

Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, Denville, NJ, announces a $92,500 settlement for an automobile accident. The 58 years old plaintiff was stopped with his left turn signal activated and waiting for traffic to clear in order to make a left turn when he was struck in the rear. The defendant was looking down to change his radio when he struck the plaintiff. The plaintiff had a very serious pre-existing history with regard to his lower back. He had previously undergone partial disc laminectomy and fusion at L5-S1 and as a result of this accident he exacerbated that pre-existing condition and accelerated a pre-existing asymptomatic and non-acute disc bulge at L4-5 resulting in a severe right sided disc herniation at that level for which he underwent anterior lumbar discectomy and fusion surgery at L4-5. The amount of insurance available to recover from the defendant was limited. Because of this single fact, this case was settled for $92,500 prior to trial
