Denville, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) August 29, 2018 – Our client was driving south on Route 287 in Hanover, New Jersey in 2014 when he was stopped in traffic and was rear-ended by another motorist.
He sustained significant spinal injuries, requiring extensive treatment. He initially received epidural injections, and ultimately underwent a single level fusion procedure. Fusion of only one motion segment of the spine is referred to as a single level fusion. “My client also sustained a traumatic brain injury resulting in memory and vision issues,” said Todd Leonard, of the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm in Denville, New Jersey.
During preparations for trial, defense attorneys disputed causation of his injuries. The plaintiff had exhausted his personal injury protection insurance coverage and had significant medical expenses.
Leonard’s client had an initial trial date of July 2, 2018, when an out-of-court mediated settlement resulted in a $1.2 million settlement on May 8, 2018. The settlement was covered by two insurance policies issued to the at-fault driver.
Todd J. Leonard and his firm have been handling all kinds of personal injury and wrongful death cases for over 25 years. The firm has successfully represented thousands of clients, and fights relentlessly to obtain maximum compensation from large insurance companies, employers, workers’ compensation insurers, government agencies and others.
