Attorney(s): Trial Attorney Cynthia Maurer, Partner Ray Futerfas, and Trial Attorney Antonio Grillo.
Our 29-year-old client was driving on a clear summer day in Jersey City, New Jersey, when another driver ignored a stop sign and plowed into her vehicle. The other driver initially attempted to blame a parked commercial truck for the crash, claiming he couldn’t see the stop sign that he ran. When police investigated the scene they found the major contributing factor to the crash was the driver’s inattention, not the van. Our client was in immediate pain after the accident, yet did not realize at first how serious her injuries were. The pain continued to worsen over time and her doctors decided surgery was the best course of action. Within two years of the crash our client underwent three surgeries. The case was settled for $650,000 prior to trial. The case was handled by Trial Attorney Cynthia Maurer, Partner Ray Futerfas, and Trial Attorney Antonio Grillo.
