The Palisades Parkway is a multi-lane highway utilized by school buses, commuters, big rigs, and motorcyclists. When drivers on busy roads like the Palisades Parkway act recklessly, the consequences can be devastating. Our client was traveling on the Palisades Parkway in Orangetown, New Jersey when she was suddenly side-swiped by a driver attempting to cut into her lane. Our client, a 52-year old small business owner, suffered a serious spinal disk herniation as well as damage to her neck. She knew that she would need sound legal advice and decided to contact our law firm to assist her with the personal injury claims process. Even after months of treatment, the injuries caused in the car crash made it impossible for her to work more than 4-5 hours a day. It was only after surgery to her neck did our client’s pain begin to subside, though she still struggled with radiating pain in her lower back which made completing day-to-day tasks a challenge. Like many individuals in the midst of a personal injury claim, our client was concerned about mounting medical bills and dealing with the insurance companies. Our team of personal injury attorneys and case managers, having handled countless similar auto accident personal injury cases, were able to compassionately provide ongoing support and guidance as she sought treatment. The case was ultimately settled for the full amount of all available insurance, $100,000. The case was handled by Trial Partner Nancy Morgan, Managing Attorney David Gross, and Trial Attorney Chris Camastro.
