Cancer Patient Accepts $895,000 for Car Injuries That Worsened Ailment

Dunscombe v. Nevis:  A disabled cancer patient who claimed her condition worsened after a crash with a landscaper’s truck accepted an $895,000 settlement on July 10.  

On Nov. 1, 2004, in Fanwood, truck driver Norberto Nevis of Colonia made a left turn and collided with an oncoming wheelchair-accessible van driven by Carole Dunscombe, now 48, of Plainfield.

At the time, Dunscombe had lymphodemia, a swelling caused by cancer, but was able to get about by wheelchair, says her lawyer, Victor Rotolo of Kearns Rotolo Law in Lebanon.  Since suffering leg fractures in the accident, she has been bedridden and is in danger of losing her legs, he says.  

The case was settled before Middlesex County Superior Court Judge Yolanda Ciccone.

Defense lawyer Frank Cofone Jr. of D’Amico & Cofone in New Brunswick says a trial on damages would have hinged on the extent to which Duscombe’s prior ailments – not the accident – were responsible for the her current condition.

What Our Clients are Saying

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

He is dedicated to providing the best service and is a true professional. I will continue to consult with him regarding any legal issues in the future. He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
