$397,300 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident

Richard Villanova represented an Essex County man in his mid 50s who was injured in when his vehicle was rear-ended by a drunk driver. Our client sustained a cervical disc herniation, requiring surgery. The client was declared totally disabled by Social Security because of the injury sustained and other medical issues. The defense argued that the disc herniation was a preexisting condition and that the client’s other health issues contributed to his injuries. The case settled after arbitration which included both pre-judgment and post-judgment interest for $397,300.00.
