Auto Accident

$1.015 Million Policy Limit Recovery for Motor Vehicle Negligence


This was a motor vehicle negligence case in which the plaintiff’s attorney, Peter Chamas of Gill & Chamas in Woodbridge, NJ contended that the defendant driver, who was moving furniture for the co-defendant church in a rented U-Haul box truck suddenly lost control of the vehicle and swerved into the oncoming lane, striking the 33-year-old plaintiff’s vehicle head-on. The co-defendant church had $1,000,000 in liability coverage and the U-Haul box truck had a $15,000/$30,000 policy. The defendants had initially contended that the defendant driver suddenly passed out at the wheel and claimed, therefore, that the collision was an unavoidable event which occurred in the absence of negligence. The plaintiff would have countered that the defendant could not advance any medical cause that would support this defense position and the plaintiff denied that this defense should be accepted. The case settled prior to trial for the insurance policy limits of $1,015,000.

Attorney for plaintiff: Peter Chamas of Gill & Chamas in Woodbridge, NJ.
