$13 Million Settlement Awarded in 13-Year Long Personal Injury Suit

Posted on January 30, 2008 5:01 am under Personal Injury

A personal injury suit filed some 13 years ago by Merryl Kihl finally concluded Monday night when the Nassau County Legislature unanimously approved a $13 million award in her favor. Kihl originally filed the lawsuit after her car slid on wet pavement on a dangerous stretch of Quaker Meeting House Road and struck a tree, causing a fractured neck and other injuries.

The legal battle, which stretched on for over a decade, has been in the plaintiff’s favor for quite a long time – she won both a jury verdict and a unanimous affirmation of the decision from the Appellate Division, which greatly limited the county’s legal options.
