$1.8 Million Verdict Awarded in Rear-End Accident

On June 21, 2017, a Sussex County jury awarded a Sparta woman $1.8 million as compensation for injuries she sustained as a passenger when the car was struck from behind at a red light in November 2012. The plaintiff would have accepted $150,000.00 to settle the case prior to trial, but the insurance company only offered $18,000.00. Sussex County Superior Court Judge Frank DeAngelis denied the motion for a new trial.

Laddey, Clark & Ryan attorneys Andrew Fraser and William Thayer were quoted in several publications on the $1.8 Million Verdict Awarded in Rear-End Accident.  To read the coverage on Mongiello v. Gallagher please click on the following links:
