$22,500 Settlement for Back InjuryJuly 1, 2013
Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, PC, Denville, NJ, announces a $22,500 settlement for a back injury. The plaintiff was involved in a motor vehicle accident where he sustained a bulging disc in his neck and his back. He was subject to a lawsuit limitation which required objective credible evidence of a permanent injury in order to present a bodily injury claim. The defense argued that the bulging disc in his neck and his back were not tantamount to a permanent injury and he should be paid nothing for his injuries. Despite this position, the defense ultimately relented and paid $22,500.00 for the two bulging discs which were sustained by the plaintiff as a result of the accident.
