Result: Brett Greiner Secures $2,000,000.00 Car Accident Settlement

$2M Settlement

Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner Brett Greiner recently secured a $2,000,000.00 settlement during the preparation stages of a trial, including jury selection in Middlesex County.

Brett represented a Carteret man who was rear-ended by another vehicle, resulting in back and neck pain. After two weeks, the pain did not get better, so he went to his family doctor. Upon medical evaluation, the doctor ordered X-rays and referred him for chiropractic treatment.

When his symptoms continued even after the specialized care, his doctors administered injections in his upper and lower spine to reduce inflammation and pain. The injections in the neck were helpful, but the one in his back did not provide any appreciable amount of pain relief or mobility improvements.

Using his medical provider’s recommendations, he next underwent surgery to remove two damaged discs in his lower back. The discs were replaced with spacers at two levels, which were then fused together. One of the spacers shifted over the following months, which is a known complication risk for that type of surgery, and a second surgery was needed to correct it.

Given all the pain and health complications he had endured, our client realized that exploring his legal options might be the only way to set things right. With the help of Attorney Brett Greiner of Levinson Axelrod, P.A., a claim was filed against the driver who rear-ended him and the auto insurance company that represented the driver.

Initially, the defendants did not want to settle the matter and tried to dispute liability and the links between our client’s serious back and neck injuries and the car accident. Drawing upon his extensive experience as a catastrophic injury lawyer and litigator, Attorney Greiner pressed the issue and prepared for trial. Once the jury selection process was completed in Middlesex County, the defendants seemed to recognize that our client’s case had been built by a reputable team, so settlement negotiations began. We are proud to say that a $2 million settlement was achieved before the need for a lengthy or complicated trial.

Brett Greiner is a Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Partner with numerous multimillion-dollar case results won for his clients in a variety of cases. Last fall, Brett obtained a 1.3M verdict for a woman who suffered a neck and shoulder injury in a car accident. He also obtained a $1.75M verdict against Walmart for a client who had a fire extinguisher fall onto his foot. He takes great pride in securing life-changing and newsworthy settlements and awards for his clients, and he is always looking for the next opportunity to help a client in need.
