$325,000 Settlement for Motor Vehicle Accident

Blume Goldfaden partner Kenneth Elwood represented a 52-year-old unemployed man who was a passenger on a New Jersey Transit bus. The bus stopped at a red light and was rear-ended by a truck. Our client sustained herniated discs in his neck (C4-5-6), requiring surgical fusion of the cervical spine. Despite the fact that no claim could be made for lost wages, Mr. Elwood was able to settle this case for $325,000.
