$2.5 Million Awarded in New Jersey to Car Crash Victim

If you’re in a car accident, please think seriously about filing a case against the other party. If you don’t, you could be leaving a lot of money on the table. For example, take one personal injury case that resulted in an award of $2.5 million.

This accident was caused because the defendant was stopped in traffic with his lights off at 10:45 at night. His car was positioned in the left-hand lane. The victim approached the car, but wasn’t able to see it until about 30 feet away. He attempted to swerve to miss it, but ended up hitting it on the right side of his vehicle.

The result was a series of injuries that could have easily been prevented. The victim suffered many hip fractures that required immediate surgery. He will eventually need more surgery, including a total hip replacement in several years.

The jury ruled that this accident should have been avoided by simply turning the car’s lights on. The award will cover the victim’s medical expenses in the present and in the future. It will also cover other damages.
