Anytime we get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, we are at risk of being involved in an accident no matter how cautious of a driver we are. Other drivers on the road may be texting, calling, tweeting, or by some other means distracted, leaving the rest of the drivers vulnerable to their negligence. If you are involved in an auto accident and suffer injuries due to personal injuries arising from the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to compensations for those injuries. Please contact one of our expert Boston personal injury lawyers or a car accident attorney specialist here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates right away.

A New Jersey woman has been awarded $1.75 million by a Somerset County jury after having to have back surgery as the result of two car accidents between 2011 and 2013. Michele Wender, 48 years-old, was awarded a total of $2.18 million, which included the $1.75 million along with interest, legal fees and other expenses. Ms. Wender was injured in the first car accident in 2011 when her vehicle was struck from behind by Anthony Burns in an accident in Franklin, New Jersey. She was then involved in a second car accident in the town of Bedminster, New Jersey in 2013, when she was struck from behind again, this time by Michelle Bartolett.
Ms. Wender ended up needing to have back surgery in 2016 to correct the issues created by these auto accidents. Both Mr. Burns and Ms. Bartolett were defendants in a three-day trial that took place this past June before Judge Edward Coleman of the New Jersey Superior Court. A confidential settlement from Mr. Burns was accepted after opening arguments, while Ms. Wender rejected several settlement offers from Ms. Bartolett’s insurance company.
