Car Accident at Red Light Causes Veteran Worsening Back Injuries

Cape May County, N.J.                                  $493,732.00

We reached a $493,732.00 settlement for a military veteran with a prior medical history of spinal injuries was involved in a rear-end motor vehicle Accident.  Because he failed conservative treatment and pain management, he had to undergo a lumbar fusion surgery. His treating doctors placed him on permanent disability. The insurance company refused to settle and argued that our client’s herniated disk must have been caused by his physical job as a maintenance superintendent or his prior spinal injuries.  They also claimed that our client already had a bad back from his degenerative spine. Our law firm counter with an expert neuroradiologist who concluded that the disk herniation in our client’s back was separate from the other incidental degenerative findings and consistent with his injury from the accident.  We also secured a vocational expert who confirmed that our client was permanently disabled from his job as a maintenance supervisor as a result of his accident injuries.  Faced with these proofs, the insurance company settled for their entire policy limit.
