Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, PC, Denville, NJ, announces a $30,000 settlement for injuries sustained when plaintiff was struck in the rear of her car by another. The plaintiff, a 50 year old teacher, was involved in an automobile accident where her vehicle was struck from the rear and she sustained multiple bulging discs in her cervical spine. The defendant argued that her injuries were not permanent in nature and failed to qualify as an exception to the lawsuit limitation restriction on the defendant’s insurance policy. Despite the defense, the case was settled for $30,000 after an arbitration hearing for that amount.
