Todd Leonard Settles Morris County Car Accident Case for $1.2 Million
Todd J. Leonard, Esq., the founding partner of the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, announces the recent settlement in the sum of $1,200,000 in connection with a 2014 car accident. Our client, a Morris County man in his early 60’s, sustained serious injuries after being rear-ended by another motorist on Route 287 in Hanover, New Jersey, while stopped in traffic.
As a result of his cervical spinal trauma, he required a single level cervical fusion. “Our client also sustained a traumatic brain injury resulting in memory and vision issues,” added Todd Leonard.
During preparation for trial, defense attorneys in the case disputed causation of the plaintiff’s injuries. The plaintiff had exhausted all of his personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage, and had significant outstanding medical bills.
The case had an initial trial date of July 2, 2018, however, an out-of-court mediation resulted in a $1.2 million settlement on May 8, 2018. The settlement was covered by two insurance policies issued to the at-fault driver. This case was featured in the July 2, 2018 New Jersey Law Journal. You can read the article here.
