Our client, a passenger in a car, was seriously injured when the car in which she was seated was hit in the rear by another car. That accident set off a chain reaction that involved several other cars which collided with the first two cars involved in the accident. As a result of the accident, our client suffered internal knee derangement which required surgical repair; lumbar disc bulges with pinched nerves; and severe headaches resulting from the aggravation and exacerbation of a genetic condition that our client had prior to the accident. The defense attorneys took a “no pay” position, claiming the headaches pre-existed the accident and were not worsened by this accident; and further, that the rest of our client’s injuries were not “serious” enough to be compensated. We obtained $1 million for this client, who was very appreciative.
