Denville, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) October 11, 2019 – The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm of Denville, New Jersey, obtained a $3,965,000 settlement in a Morris County car accident crash that left a woman with serious orthopedic injuries, as well as a traumatic brain injury.
The firm’s client was driving northbound on Bernardsville Road in Mendham, when an oncoming vehicle hit her car head-on after crossing the road’s centerline. The accident occurred on March 28, 2017, during the course of her employment as a successful local realtor.
Attorney Todd J. Leonard filed a lawsuit against the defendant, the driver of the oncoming vehicle, who was 18 years old at the time of the collision. The defendant was unable to explain why he lost control of his car and pled guilty to a careless driving charge with a civil reservation.
“Head-on crashes are among the most dangerous kinds of car accidents due to the sheer force of impact when the front of one vehicle strikes the front of another vehicle,” said New Jersey personal injury attorney Todd J. Leonard. “Our client suffered serious injuries and was unable to continue her job after the accident. We are proud to have secured this settlement to help get her life back on track.”
She sustained a traumatic brain injury along with other serious orthopedic injuries that required multiple surgeries. She had an inner ear injury and three fractures in her limbs. The case was settled for $3,965,000 in mediation on June 20, 2019.
“If you’re involved in a car accident, contacting a personal injury attorney is important,” said Leonard. “While you focus on recovering from your injuries, the attorney can deal with the insurance companies and work on holding the person that was responsible for your accident accountable.”
The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm has more than 30 years of experience with helping seriously injured clients in New Jersey obtain just compensation for their injuries. The firm’s team of experienced personal injury attorneys have recovered over $100 million on behalf of clients and their families.
