$100,000 Settlement for a Rear-End AccidentJuly 1, 2014 | Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances.
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, Denville, NJ, announces a $100,000 settlement for a rear end accident. The plaintiff was stopped and hit from behind in a forceful way. The vehicle was a total loss and the plaintiff suffered lower back disc herniation at L5-S1, with an underlying annular tear. She underwent a series of conservative treatments which did not alleviate her problems. She then underwent a posterior lumbar diskectomy and fusion. Under these facts, the plaintiff could have collected the $250,000 policy limit available in her case. However, a few months before surgery the plaintiff posted pictures to social media page which could have been devastating to the case – pictures of the plaintiff at the gym and on vacation. We were able to settle the case prior to trial for $100,000.
