$300,000 Recovery For Traffic Accident

$300,000 Recovery: Our client was stopped at a traffic light when she was struck from behind by the defendant tow truck. At the time of impact, the tow truck had two vehicles in tow. Our client received back, neck and shoulder injuries as a result of the collision. These injuries required several surgeries and extensive time off of work. The defendant driver admitted liability for the accident, claiming that traction and braking were reduced due to the weight that was being towed. The defendant tow truck company refused to admit liability and argued that our client had pre-existing injuries due to three prior accidents and her obesity. After almost four years of litigation, the defendant insurer agreed to settle for $300,000 at mediation.

Injuries: soft tissue neck and back injuries requiring surgical intervention and epidural injections; rotator cuff tear requiring surgical repair.

Damages: past & future medical expenses, loss of business & earning capacity, pain & suffering.
