Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $375,000 settlement for an automobile accident caused by garbage truck. The plaintiff was operating her vehicle on a rural highway when a commercial garbage truck thought it could make it across the highway from a stop sign and failed. The plaintiff had her first of two ankle surgeries, but while she was on the operating table, she suffered a stress induced heart problem requiring a catheratization procedure. The ankle surgeries and the heart procedures were related to the accident and the case was settled prior to trial for $375,000.
