$125,000 Settlement for Injuries Caused In Garden State Parkway AccidentSeptember 1, 2013
Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, PC, Denville, NJ, announces a $125,000 settlement for injuries sustained in an accident on the Garden State Parkway. The Plaintiff is a 39 year old mother of two. In May, 2010 she was traveling south on the Garden State Parkway when another vehicle improperly changed lanes, striking her car and causing her to spin out of control resulting in the plaintiff hitting the guard rail. The problem with the case is that despite sustaining injuries in the accident, the plaintiff did not formally treat her injuries for approximately four months. Thereafter, she treated on a regular basis and ultimately underwent anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion at C3-4. Despite the large lapse in the time prior to when the plaintiff went for treatment, the case was resolved subsequent to an arbitration hearing, but prior to trial, for $125,000.
