Jury Awards $1.25 Million for Road Rage
A Middlesex county jury awarded $1.25 Million on Sept 13 to a woman injured in an accident she blamed on road rage. however, her partial liability will reduce her net award to $937,500 says her attorney Nicholas J. Leonardis of Stathis & Leonardis in Edison.
The plaintiff was struck on the New Jersey Turnpike causing her car to spin out of control and strike a concrete divider. She suffered a fractured sternum and low back injury requiring a Lumbar Fusion says attorney Leonardis.
The verdict was "significantly higher" than the final pre trial offer made by the defense. "Our client wished to have her day in court and was very pleased with the result" says Attorney Leonardis
