On December 4, 2017, Plaintiff, a 44 year old male, was traveling westbound on Raymond Road in South Brunswick, New Jersey, when Defendant failed to stop for a red traffic signal and struck Plaintiff’s vehicle. Plaintiff remained for 2 days in the hospital having been diagnosed with a rib fracture, renal artery hemorrhage; traumatic injury to right lower pole accessory renal artery; and an acromioclavicular tear.
Plaintiff’s counsel, Michelle M. Tullio, Esq. of the Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, P.C. law firm in Perth Amboy, NJ alleged that as a result of this incident, Plaintiff sustained injuries to his lower and upper back, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, displaced right posterior 12th rib fracture, traumatic injury to a right lower pole accessory renal artery, left shoulder, left elbow and left bicep. Subsequently, Plaintiff underwent surgery to the lumbar spine and another surgery to his cervical spine. Additionally Plaintiff underwent invasive treatments for pain management, including injections and radiofrequency ablation.
Plaintiff also underwent chiropractic treatment and pain management treatment, but gained no relief. Due to his injuries, the Plaintiff was out of work on disability for more than six months and his physical activities were extremely limited. Other than Plaintiff’s cervical and lumbar injuries, all of his other injuries resolved without the need for further medical treatment. Michelle M. Tullio, Esq. filed a lawsuit on Plaintiff’s behalf in the Superior Court of New Jersey.
Before an Answer was filed by the Defendant, the Defendant’s insurance carrier called to settle the case before continuing with litigation. Ms. Tullio fought relentlessly with the insurance adjuster on behalf of the Plaintiff for the traumatic ordeal and pain he endured since the accident, for the suffering he would continue to bear in the future, for his permanent physical limitations and for his new life of daily distress.
After approximately three weeks of negotiations, Plaintiff’s claim for personal injuries was settled for $600,000, which included all outstanding medical bills due to exhaustion of Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) limits of $15,000.00.If you or someone you know has been injured, contact the law firm of Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, P.C. today.
