HACKENSACK — A teenage girl who sued her father after he caused a car crash that allegedly left her with permanent spinal injuries has been awarded $4.1 million by a jury, according to a report.

The then 14-year-old was riding in the back seat on Feb. 23, 2013, when her father blew through a stop sign at the corner of Atwood Avenue and North Summit Street in Tenafly, said.

The girl suffered two herniated discs in her neck and one in her back. The teen will have spinal surgery since she is still in pain despite undergoing therapy and acupuncture, the report said.

  1. Then the father is going to owe her a lot of money, because not too many people have insurance policies that will cover that.
    Insurance will probably pay the policy limit and move on.

  2. time to take the Bernie Goetz approach… declare bankruptcy and never pay.
