Levinson Axelrod, P.A. is pleased to announce a multi-million dollar case victory secured by Partner Mark V. Kuminski on behalf of an auto accident victim. The case was resolved through a jury trial, with jurors returning a significant $2,500,000 verdict – nearly 4 times the last offer made by the defense. The case was also recently profiled in a feature article on Law.com.
The case involved a local Franklin Township woman who was involved in a three-car motor vehicle accident. The incident occurred when one of the drivers, later named as the defendant in the personal injury lawsuit filed by Mark and our firm, rear-ended a vehicle that had been stopped. The collisions pushed the struck vehicle forward into the rear of our client’s car.
As a result of the impact, our client suffered injuries to her back, neck, and shoulder, as well as a concussion. Once her concussion symptoms had resolved, she was required to undergo multiple pain management procedures for her orthopedic injuries, as well as two surgeries on her neck. Although she has returned to work, she continues to suffer from various symptoms related to her injuries.
After resolving the matter of the defendant driver’s fault, Mark litigated at trial on the issue of damages, as the insurance carrier representing the at-fault driver did not make a settlement offer sufficient enough to cover our clients’ needs. Mark’s ability to express the full scope of damages incurred by our client and their impact on her life, including her extensive suffering, medical treatment, lost wages, and reduced quality of life, proved successful in compelling the jury to rule in our client’s favor.
The jury ultimately awarded a substantial $2.5 million in damages to our client – a result that was nearly four times the last settlement offer made by the defendant’s insurance company.
