A combination of great lawyering and a good client resulted in a $1.48 Million Verdict. The Plaintiff was a 37 year old father of four when he was rear ended at a stop light.
The Plaintiff had immediate complaints of radiating right leg pain following the accident. The radiating leg pain is a sign of a herniated disc.
What made the lawyering in this case so good was the fact that the Plaintiff had gone to his chiropractor 7 days earlier with complaints of low back pain.
As is typical in these cases the insurance company failed to properly evaluate the client and the injury, and offered $20,000.00. The jury thought otherwise and returned a verdict of $1.48 Million Dollars; including $1.30 Million Dollars for pain and suffering.
It would appear as if the jury truly liked the client, his doctor, and his lawyer. Likewise they apparently disliked the defense doctor.
