Woman Sustains Serious Injuries Due To Car Accident; Settled for $655,000
While driving in the course of her work as a drug and alcohol counselor, a 59-year-old woman was injured when a driver made an illegal U-turn directly into the path of her vehicle. The woman sustained multiple injuries, including a sprain of the left foot and ankle, a herniated disc and multiple fractures in her leg, foot and ribs. The woman had a workmen’s compensation lien of $192,344, and the workmen’s compensation carrier agreed to accept $105,000. Jeffrey A. Milman of Hodes Milman Liebeck, LLP represented the woman, and mediation resulted in a $655,000 settlement, with $105,000 paid to the workmen’s compensation carrier.
