$550,000 Settlement for Tractor-Trailer Accident

John Molinari represented a 51-year-old woman who was merging into traffic after paying the toll on the New Jersey Turnpike in Secaucus when she was struck by a tractor-trailer that was slowly merging into the same lane. She sustained an aggravation of preexisting injuries, including cervical herniations, bulges, and radiculopathy requiring epidural injections, trigger point injections, and a cervical fusion surgery. The defense provided medical expert reports stating that the plaintiff’s injuries and MRI films were unchanged from her two prior accidents. The case settled prior to trial for $550,000.
