$95,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident / Insurance Coverage

The firm represented a woman who sustained a back injury when her car was sideswiped by another vehicle. The other driver claimed that our client was at fault and that her injury was not caused by this accident, but rather was caused by a work injury sustained 10 years prior. Working with the woman’s treating doctors, the firm showed that the injury could only have been caused by this accident. The case settled prior to trial for $95,000.

The firm’s client’s automobile insurance carrier initially denied New Jersey Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits because the client resided in Pennsylvania. The carrier ultimately provided coverage after the firm successfully argued that New Jersey’s higher coverage limits applied to this accident which occurred in New Jersey.
