Our client, a male in his 30’s was hit from behind on New Year’s Day while he was at a stop light. There was minimal damage to his car. An ambulance did not come to the scene. He first went to a doctor the day after the accident complaining of headaches. Thereafter his family noticed our client began using incorrect words, and often forgot many things recently told to him. After following up with neurologists, our client was diagnosed with a severe concussion. The insurance company offered ‘nuisance value’ and relied upon their own doctors who stated our client was perfectly normal. At arbitration, the personal injury lawyers from the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe were able to secure a $220,000 award.
