$600,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle/Tractor Trailer Accident

Kenneth Elwood represented a woman who was rear-ended by a tractor trailer that had just exited Interstate 280 in Kearny, New Jersey. Our client’s vehicle was crushed and emergency workers had to use the jaws of life to remove her from the vehicle. She suffered a Grade IV liver laceration, fractured ribs, a punctured lung, a pleural effusion, neck and back injuries and significant post traumatic stress disorder. The matter settled after mediation for $600,000.
