RAM Law’s client was operating an automobile on Route 27 in New Brunswick on May 16, 2005 when his vehicle was struck on the passenger’s side by an automobile that failed to stop at a stop sign. The client was taken by ambulance to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital following the accident. Thereafter, he came under the care of Dr. Douglas Spiel. Dr. Spiel diagnosed two thoracic disc herniations and an aggravation of pre-existing lumbar disc herniations. The client underwent an extensive course of pain management treatment consisting of a series of epidural and nerve block injections and a percutaneous discectomy surgery. The Defendant argued that the Plaintiff’s disc injuries and treatment was not causally related to the accident and a result of prior injuries. The case settled prior to trial for $157,500.
