June 8, 2018 $5.5 Million Paid to Disabled Driver

A Hazlet, NJ man was turning left into his driveway when he was suddenly struck by a commercial pick-up truck driven by an employee of a water delivery company.

The accident exacerbated the man’s pre-existing back condition. Pain flared following the accident, which led to multiple surgeries, including spinal decompression with fusion of his back and the implantation of a dorsal column stimulator to relieve his pain. Additionally, the victim suffered nerve damage to both of his elbows due to the use of a walker following his back surgery, resulting in multiple ulnar release surgeries on his elbows. He was repeatedly hospitalized for complications and treatment all related to the accident.

Mr. Maggs and Mr. McDermott represented their client and worked closely with him through his lengthy treatment. The Firm helped him navigate through the complicated medical and legal channels to ensure his legal rights were protected. After years of litigation, Mr. Maggs and Mr. McDermott reached a settlement for their client of $5.5 million with the water delivery company.

According to the client, “Mr. Maggs and Mr. McDermott helped me put my life back together and got me back on my feet. For that, I am eternally grateful.”
