$250,000 Settlement for 38-Year-Old Client Injured in Auto Accident
In November of 2017, our 38-year-old married client was driving home after dropping his son off at his school. As he traveled on Tuckers Corners Road in Plattekill, the defendant driver failed to keep right, crossed over into our client’s lane and sideswiped his car. Our client, who was already out of work and disabled from a prior incident resulting in a pelvic fracture, suffered new low back and neck injuries. He underwent a low back transforaminal decompression in NJ in March of 2018. The case was placed into suit. We made a summary judgment motion on the issue of fault that the Court granted. The defendant’s insurance company then offered all of the available insurance coverage after depositions were held. We then turned to the supplementary underinsured coverage and all of that was tendered as well. The case settled for a total of $250,000.00.
