$150,000 Settlement in Car AccidentJanuary 1, 2012
Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $150,000 settlement in an auto accident case. Plaintiff was travelling on a Union County road when a vehicle operated by a 17 year old inexperienced driver crossed into his lane and side-swiped his car. Plaintiff underwent surgery for a torn rotator cuff and back surgery. The defense argued that his back condition was preexisting and was caused by his many years at his job in construction. Mr. Musmanno was able to successfully argue to the contrary and the defendant’s insurer paid $150,000 to settle the case prior to trial.
