- Comments Off on 49Motor Vehicle Accident – $210,000 Settlement for School Bus Driver
This personal injury case settled on the eve of trial for $210,000 because of the skilled preparation of Personal Injury Lawyers at Antin, Ehrlich and Epstein. The plaintiff, a 41-year-old school bus driver, was rear ended by another vehicle while driving a school bus in the course of her employment.
The plaintiff was rear ended while driving a school bus. More than three years following the subject accident, she underwent a cervical discectomy. In spite of a difficult plaintiff’s venue (Westchester County), minimal property damage to the rear of the plaintiff’s bus, and the significant gap between her surgery and the date of accident, our personal injury law firm persuaded the defendant’s insurance company that the surgery was necessitated by the accident.
The settlement was helped by a negotiated compromise of the workers compensation lien.
