$100,000 Settlement for Distracted Driving AccidentMay 1, 2014
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 in a distracted driving accident. On April 22, 2013, the plaintiff was stopped and struck in the rear by the defendant’s vehicle when the defendant became distracted by another driver. As a result of the accident, the plaintiff sustained a disc herniation at C6-7 and after conservative therapy failed, as well as an epidural steroid injection, he underwent anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery performed by a qualified neurosurgeon. The maximum amount of insurance the plaintiff was able to collect in his case due to limited policies was $100,000.00, which he collected quickly since his case was worth much more than the collectible insurance.
