$3,800,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident in Newark

A motor vehicle accident case involving a 34-year-old female has settled with the Defendant for $3,800,000.00. The Plaintiff was represented by Barry R. Eichen of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP.

On October 6, 2017, the Plaintiff was a passenger in a motor vehicle in Newark, New Jersey when a passenger vehicle with commercial insurance emerged from a parking space and struck the vehicle that Plaintiff was in. The defense contended that the accident did not cause any property damage and therefore, could not have contributed to Plaintiff’s injuries. In addition, Plaintiff was involved in three prior incidents all of which caused and contributed to her need for subsequent surgeries. Plaintiff contended that her cervical and lumbar fusions were directly related to this accident. Plaintiff was on total disability at the time of the accident and did not produce any economic or lost wage evidence.
