Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, PC, Denville, NJ, announces a $130,000 settlement for injuries caused when plaintiff’s car was rear-ended. The Plaintiff, approximately 25 years of age, was traveling in an easterly direction on Route 10 in Roxbury in the left lane, approaching a traffic light. He initially contemplated moving to the right lane but changed his mind and came to a stop in the left lane. The vehicle behind him thought he was moving to the right lane and was attempting to beat the light. When the Plaintiff did not move to the right lane, the defendant struck the rear of the plaintiff’s vehicle. The plaintiff was injured and required a partial laminectomy in his low back, leaving part of the disc and only removing that portion which was herniated. He also underwent an arthroscope for a torn medial meniscus in his knee. The case was settled with Plymouth Rock Insurance Company for $130,000 prior to trial.
