On January 22, 2007 I represented a resident of Trenton, New Jersey who was a passenger in a car which was hit head on by a dump truck while traveling on State Highway 68. The dump truck that hit her was unable to stop and attempted to avoid colliding with another vehicle by entering the northbound lane. While the driver was able to avoid one accident, he was unable to avoid striking the vehicle our plaintiff was in.
As a result of the accident she sustained a traumatic brain injury, multiple fractures of her left shoulder and arm, and fractures to her right leg. My client also suffered numerous process fractures of the lumbar spine and multiple rib fractures. The case went to mediation and settled for $3.5 million.
