$1,839,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident

Plaintiff was stopped in traffic when a State of New Jersey motor vehicle struck Plaintiff’s vehicle from behind. Plaintiff had prior neck and back injuries which were aggravated in this accident. Plaintiff’s lawyer, Barry R. Eichen, of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP, argued that Plaintiff’s injuries were worsened and as a result, Plaintiff needed a surgery for her neck and back. Defendant stated these preexisting injuries were not aggravated and that the impact was not sufficient to aggravate Plaintiff’s preexisting injuries. This case settled prior to jury selection for $1,839,000.
