On her way to work one winter morning, our client proceeded through an intersection on a fairly busy highway on a green light. The next thing she knew, a large delivery truck was barreling toward her from the passenger’s side. An instant later, the truck smashed into her, knocking her car into oncoming traffic. She was lucky in that no other cars hit her, but the damage was done.
Our client had a long history of congenital back issues along with natural wear and tear plus symptoms from previous trauma. This crash took her back from bad to worse. She may have needed surgery at some point before the crash, but she now needed significant back surgery ASAP to avoid living in constant pain. Our attorneys thoroughly investigated our client’s claim and history to put together a comprehensive claim summary package. We worked with doctors, expert witnesses, and our client’s co-workers to detail the full extent to which the crash worsened her back condition. That package was enough to convince the defendant’s insurance company to agree to a pre-litigation mediation, resulting in a settlement that allowed our client to move on and obtain the surgery she could not otherwise afford.
