auto collision

Back in the summer of 2017, Miguel Alvarez was working for the Bergen County Transit system. He was just your average bus driver, making his rounds. When he stopped to pick up a passenger on Route 46 in Burgen County, New Jersey, someone rear-ended him. It was a school bus driver working for the Morgan Education System. This accident would change Mr. Alvarez’s life. The crash caused Alvarez extreme pain. The collision resulted in an existing problem, becoming much worse. He had two herniations at L3-L4 and L4-L5 in his spine. The crash made the herniations increase in size. The pain was so bad, Alvares has to leave his job as a bus driver.

Eventually, Mr. Alvarez needed surgery. After epidural injections, a two-level bilateral fusion had to be done on his spine. luckily, the case was settled in mediation.Mr. Alvarez was awarded $2.25 million, to be paid by the school board and their driver that rear-ended Alvarez.
