DUI Accident

Our client was rear-ended while stopped at a toll booth on the New Jersey Turnpike. The responsible driver was intoxicated and fled the scene, but was apprehended 18 miles from the location of the accident. Our client suffered a cervical disc herniation at the C6-C7 level, which caused him to undergo an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. During the course of the surgery it was discovered that the force of the impact from this accident was such that it fractured the screws from a previous discectomy at a different level. Our client had moved to California after the accident, and fortunately, we were able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $150,000 without the need for a lawsuit, which would have required him to make several return trips to New Jersey.
