Major Win Alert: Jones Jones LLC New Jersey Partner Saves Client $50,000

nes Jones LLC is pleased to share that Partner Christine Diana secured another successful outcome for a major airline client in the state of New Jersey.


In this case, the claimant, a flight attendant, maintained a serious shoulder injury while on the job. During the settlement proceedings, Diana negotiated for a settlement of 37.5% of shoulder injury medical costs. The claimant’s attorney argued that the case was worth more than the negotiated percentage and both parties found it necessary to get the judge’s opinion regarding the value of the case. Jones Jones argued that as the claimant had already returned to full duty work, the original negotiation was sufficient. The judge ultimately ruled in favor of Jones Jones’ client. This decision saved the client $50,000 via a settlement from the settlement demand.


In approaching this case, Diana and her team reviewed the treatment records as well as both parties’ permanency exams. The team found that the claimant did have a serious injury but had already returned to work full duty. Jones Jones was able to use that finding as a factor when negotiating the settlement. In negotiating with opposing counsel, a conference for settlement was discussed, but based on the thorough review of the treatment records and both parties’ permanency exams, Diana and her team were confident in their offer in front of the judge. The judge ultimately valued the case at the same amount Diana and her team negotiated, showcasing the team’s expertise in this space.


Congratulations to Diana and her entire team. If you are in need of assistance with a workers’ compensation case, please contact our appellate team at
