A pair of claimants recently settled personal injury claims arising from a head on auto crash for a total of $425,000. The pair were traveling together on Route 23 in Hardyston when the offending vehicle crossed the center line and hit their car. As a result of the accident, one claimant was hospitalized for nearly a month, having suffered respiratory failure, traumatic brain injury, multiple fractures and a host of other injuries. The other claimant sustained a broken forearm and multiple lacerations. The matter settled during mediation prior to formal litigation.
