Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $232,500 settlement for an automobile accident. A high school student was in the back middle seat in a car packed with her friends. She was wearing a seat belt. Returning from a trip to McDonald’s, the driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to flip several times. The Plaintiff, an accomplished soccer player with scholarship offers to college pending was injured in the accident, breaking several bones in her hips, back and ribs. She has been unable to play soccer since and will not be able to play in the future. Limited by the amount of available insurance, the case was settled the day before the trial for $232,500.
