While traveling one morning from one customer’s home to another’s, our client stopped to wait for oncoming traffic to clear before making a left turn. A driver approaching him from behind did not notice our client’s vehicle stopped in the road and crashed into him without slowing. Luckily, our client was able to walk away from the crash. While he survived, his life was changed.
Our client suffered neck injuries from whiplash that caused frequent neck pain and debilitating headaches. These symptoms and the limitations they caused prevented him from being able to maintain his business, and he had to give it up. The other driver’s insurance company wouldn’t even pay for his healthcare bills. One of our attorneys worked to show the defense how our client’s life was changed and gave them every opportunity to settle. But they refused to make it right. A jury understood that our client’s life was changed forever. After the case was taken to trial, the jury determined that his damages were worth seven figures. Our attorney subsequently obtained an additional $100,000 in benefits from the client’s own insurance as well.
