A 64-year old former chemist accepted $1.9 million to settle her claim for brain, back and pelvic injuries sustained in a collision on the Garden State Parkway in Bloomfield, NJ. The plaintiff's car was struck from behind by a commercial vehicle and caused to leave the roadway and hit a tree. Plaintiff suffered brain injuries, including memory loss, in addition to pelvic and disc fractures that required surgery. The owner of the commercial vehicle and the individual driver of the vehicle were both sued. The case settled during pre-trial mediation.
