$292,500 Settlement for Truck Accident

John Molinari represented a 47-year-old woman who was traveling on Northfield Road in Edison when she was violently struck by a truck that was attempting to maneuver around stopped traffic. She struck the side of her head on the driver’s side window. As a result of the accident, the woman suffered from acute hearing loss from a perilyphamatic fistula in her left ear that had to be surgically repaired. The repair fixed the hearing loss but left her with some tinnitus that had improved over time. The case settled just before trial for $292,500.
