Kearny, NJ - In September, 2012, our client was driving south on Kearny Avenue and the defendant was traveling north on the same road. The defendant then illegally passed another vehicle on the left and crossed over the double yellow lines into the client's lane. The client was unable to avoid the collision and the defendant’s vehicle crashed into her vehicle head-on, causing air bags to deploy. Our client suffered injuries to her neck, back and left shoulder. The defendant’s insurance carrier would not settle with our firm, so we instituted litigation. The case settled on the courthouse steps on the day of trial.
