$65,000 Settlement for Passenger in Automobile AccidentMay 1, 2013
Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $65,000 settlement for an automobile accident. The plaintiff, approximately 42 years of age, was driving in Florham Park in a rental vehicle and was stopped in her lane waiting to make a left turn when she was struck in the rear by the defendant. The defendant received a careless driving ticket. The force of the impact was so great that it pushed the plaintiff’s vehicle forward approximately fifty feet from a dead stop. As a result of the accident, she sustained a one and half inch scar on the left side of her forehead, a basilar skull fracture and a disc herniation at C6-7 that did not require any type of surgery. Her case was resolved for the amount of available insurance of $65,000 prior to trial.
