Asta Law represented a New Jersey police sergeant who was involved in a motor vehicle accident while on patrol. An investigation into the accident revealed that the defendant was attempting an illegal u-turn which caused the collision. The officer suffered injuries to the lower back requiring spinal surgery and leading to his retirement from the police force. Despite the defendant’s claim that the back injury pre-existed the car crash, medical evidence established that the officer would have had a full work-life expectancy on the police force but for the injury. A settlement of $850,000 was reached during the trial.
