$100,000.00 Settlement for Rear-end CollisionJanuary 1, 2016
Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., Chair of the Personal Injury Department and Certified Civil Trial Attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, PC in Denville, NJ, announces a $100,000.00 settlement for injury from a rear-end collision.
The Plaintiff is presently thirty-six (36) years of age. She was stopped and struck in the rear of her vehicle in June 2013, causing approximately $7,000.00 in damage to the rear of her vehicle. As a result of the accident, she sustained a herniated disc at C5-C6. The first obstacle presented was that the Plaintiff did not initially go to the hospital and waited approximately one month before presenting for medical treatment. Her medical treatment was extremely sparse over the next 3-4 months and then she stopped treating for approximately eight months before ultimately undergoing three cervical epidural injections and anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion at C5-C6 and C6-C7 by a neurosurgeon. Despite the paucity of treatment, the defendant offered their $100,000.00 policy limit which is the most money that the Plaintiff could collect given the limited amount of insurance available in her case given the limited amount of insurance available in her case.
