$100,000 Settlement for Rear End CollisionAugust 15, 2015
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 collision.
On November 25, 2014, the plaintiff was stopped and struck in the rear by another vehicle. She injured her back primarily and herniated a disc at L5-S1 which required surgical intervention. She first sought conservative care with her primary care physician and her orthopedist, as well as with a rehabilitation and physical therapy doctor. When conservative care failed to relieve her symptoms, a neurosurgeon performed left L5 hemilaminectomy, facetectomy and foraminotomy with decompression of the nerve roots. No hardware was used in connection with the surgery. The case was settled quickly for the $100,000 policy limit, which was the maximum amount of collectible insurance under the facts of the case.
