Garces & Grabler, P.C.’s client was a teacher at an Essex County High School. During school hours, he was assaulted by a student and suffered an aggravation of a pre-existing back injury that required spinal surgery. The case was handled by New Jersey Personal Injury Attorney Gary A. Cavalli, Esq., team leader of Garces & Grabler, P.C.’s Personal Injury Department. The case was settled for $400,000, the offer being made by the company that provided homeowner’s insurance for the parents of the student who assaulted the teacher. The settlement represented 80% of the total policy limits. Because the teacher was forced to miss substantial time from work, Garces & Grabler, P.C. is also handling a related workers’ compensation case on the teacher’s behalf and, in addition to the settlement, our client is also receiving temporary workers’ compensation benefits while he is out of work.
