J. Nicholas Strasser of the insurance defense department successfully defended an Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company’s insured driver recently in a jury trial in Bergen County before the Hon. Estela M. De La Cruz, J.S.C. Plaintiff was rear ended by the Firm’s client and alleged permanent injuries to his lower back as a result of the accident. Nick successfully proved that the plaintiff did not suffer a permanent injury as a result of the accident and, therefore, the alleged injuries did not satisfy the limitation on lawsuit threshold. The jury entered a unanimous 6-0 verdict in favor of the Firm’s client.
