$200,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident / Left-Turn Crash
- Date: Spring/Summer 2007
- Attorney: Richard J. Villanova
- Settlement: $200,000
- Practice Areas: Automobile Accident
Richard J. Villanova represented a self-employed Essex County man in his early 40s who was injured in a collision with another vehicle which made a left turn in front of him. Our client sustained a cervical spine injury requiring multiple surgeries. As a result of his injuries he was rendered a paraplegic. Richard was able to ascertain that there was additional insurance coverage available through a policy maintained by a family member of the defendant, with whom the defendant resided. Problematic in the case was the fact that our client was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the collision. Despite this difficulty, Richard Villanova was able to settle this claim, pre-suit, for $200,000.
