Partner Jim Dunn, a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, recently resolved a case involving a motor vehicle accident for a client that had preexisting degenerative conditions in his back. The accident occurred when Defendants' truck attempted to change lanes and the driver failed to pay attention to our client driving next to them. As a result of the accident, our client needed surgery. The insurance company attempted to argue that the pain and disability that he will suffer for the rest of his life, were related to his preexisting degenerative conditions and not from this accident. Just prior to this case going to trial in Morris County, the defendants' insurance company agreed to pay $250,000 to settle this claim.
