Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner Kathleen M. DiGiovanni was successful in reaching a $260,000 settlement for a client who suffered serious neck injuries after his vehicle was struck from behind.
According to court documents, the case involved a motor vehicle accident that occurred in November 2017 in Lakewood, NJ. Our client was stopped in traffic when his vehicle was struck from behind by another motorist.
As a result of the rear-end collision, our client sustained multiple herniated discs in his neck that required surgery. His treatment included the insertion of plates and screws in his neck. While he recovered well from the procedure, he was left with residual pain and loss of range of motion in his neck.
Ultimately, Kathleen was able to negotiate a $260,000 settlement for our client. The financial recovery will cover our client’s extensive medical bills, as well as his pain and suffering, lost income, and other damages arising from his injuries.
