$625,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident with Tractor Trailer

Mr. Molinari represented a 37-year-old man who was driving a car that was sideswiped by a tractor trailer. He sustained multiple injuries, including fractures of the foot and ankle requiring multiple surgeries, lumbar herniations requiring extensive pain management treatment and procedures, and eventually, a lumbar fusion. He also sustained a right shoulder rotator cuff tear requiring surgery and cervical injuries requiring epidurals and facet blocks. The defense contended that the various surgeries were not related to the accident and were due to his numerous preexisting medical conditions. They also contended that the impact was so minor that it could not have been the cause of the plaintiff’s injuries.
