Levinson Axelrod attorney Mark Kuminski recently secured a $250,000 verdict in a motor vehicle accident case where our client, a 48 year old Sheriff’s officer, was injured when his work vehicle was struck from behind while stopped in traffic. He sustained multiple herniated discs in his neck, as well as an aggravation of pre-existing asymptomatic degenerative changes. Defendants argued that the plaintiff’s injuries were all degenerative in nature, and therefore did not meet the requirements of the Limitation on Lawsuit Threshold in order to be eligible to bring the claim. Defendants offered the plaintiff a total of $35,000.00 to settle the case. The jury returned a verdict in the amount of $250,000.00.
