Rear Ended At A Stop Light – $585,000

On February 28, 2014, our client brought his pickup truck to a legal stop at a stoplight in Burlington County. While waiting for the light to turn green, another vehicle rear-ended him. The other driver did not notice our client’s car and failed to stop his own vehicle in time. As a result, the collision totaled our client’s vehicle and caused severe physical trauma.

Rear-Ended In Burlington County

Our client did everything right. He saw the vehicles in front of his truck stop at the intersection when the light changed and came to a stop himself. He didn’t hear the other vehicle attempt to stop, but he felt the impact.

The other vehicle hit our client’s F150, causing our client to slam into his steering wheel and bend it. When he tried to turn around to see what happened, the pain in his neck was so severe that he couldn’t. He had trouble moving at all and waited for the Medford EMS to arrive so that they could move him safely.

It was only after the accident that he learned the other driver hit his truck so hard that the at-fault driver’s vehicle was stuck under the truck bed.

Our client received treatment at the hospital, but he’ll have the injuries he sustained for the rest of his life. The injuries to his neck were so severe that he required surgery and years of therapy. Despite the best efforts of the doctors treating him, our client could not return to full-time work. With mounting medical bills, a totaled car, and an uncertain future, he reached out to Console & Associates P.C.

The Compensation He Deserved

When he called our office, we reviewed his claim and knew that we could help. We understand New Jersey’s car accident liability laws, and we put that experience to work for him.

Making a car crash claim is about more than paying the medical bills. His injuries left our client with chronic pain and disability that limited his ability to work for the rest of his life. Console & Associates P.C. spoke with employment and medical experts to learn the true cost of our client’s injuries. When compiling the evidence on behalf of our client, we took all of this information into account. When we filed the lawsuit, we seek compensation for:

  • Medical Bills
  • Surgery Costs And Rehabilitation
  • Loss Of Income – Our client’s injuries prevented him from continuing work as a full-time carpenter. The lawyers at Console & Associates P.C. had an employment expert calculate the economic impact of this disability.
  • Compensation For Our Client’s Ongoing Pain And Suffering

We filed the claim with the superior court of New Jersey in November of 2017. On January 29, 2018, we recovered $585,000 for our client. Nothing can replace the career he lost or make up for his pain and suffering. But, this settlement will help him rebuild his life and help make up for the income the accident cost him.
