$300,000 Settlement for Automobile AccidentOctober 1, 2012
Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $300,000 settlement for an automobile accident. An elderly woman was a passenger in her friend’s vehicle. Her friend got something in his eye, crossed the double yellow line and struck a box truck head on. She fractured her dominant right hand requiring open reduction and internal fixation with a plate and aggravated her arthritic knee, necessitating total knee replacement. Three days prior to trial, after the plaintiff’s expert was deposed on videotape, the defendant’s insurer relented and tendered its $300,000 policy limit.
