Garbage Truck Hits Stopped Car In Rear – $475,000 Settlement

When postal truck was delivering mail on Rock Cut Road in Newburgh, the cars behind the mail truck stopped.   With no oncoming traffic coming, one car was able to pass the mail truck.  The next car stopped behind the mail truck because a car was coming in the opposite lane.  Unfortunately, a garbage truck was following too closely and failed to stop, crashing into the stopped car, pushing it into the postal truck.  Our Pine Bush client’s neck was injured so badly that she required injections for the pain and ultimately needed surgery.  A lawsuit was started by Managing Attorney Elizabeth Wolff and after depositions by Trial Attorney Brian Acard, the case was settled for $475,000.
