$1.3 Million Settlement for Auto Accident: Parked Car Sideswiped by Commercial Truck

Motor Vehicle Accident

Our client in this case was a 37-year old man who was injured when his parked school bus was sideswiped by the defendants’ commercial truck. At the time of the collision, our client was reaching beneath a seat to retrieve a bag. After the accident, our client underwent cervical fusion and lumbar decompressive laminectomy. The defendants claimed that our client’s injuries were caused by a prior motor vehicle accident wherein he sustained neck and back injuries.

The matter did not settle during a private mediation handled by WRSH partners Kenneth Halperin and Nicole Michelle Gill, but later settled prior to trial for $1.3 million.
