While at a stop light, our client, a 22 year old college student, was hit from behind. She was taken to the hospital. Despite complaining of headaches and nausea, she was discharged with a diagnosis of a neck sprain. Once a vibrant, outgoing young lady, our client broke up with her boyfriend, lost many friends, and dropped out of study groups. She suffered from light sensitivity, forgetfulness, depression, and insomnia. Her condition did not improve after years of medical and psychological treatment. The defense hired doctors who all stated our client was a normal young woman. Ultimately at trial, the carrier offered $600,000 to settle the case. After our firm tried this case, the jury rendered a verdict of $3.5 million.The information provided on this website does not, and is not intended to, constitute legal advice; instead, all information, content, and materials available on this site are for general informational purposes only.
