Our client was a restrained driver of a van pulling a trailer of fruit when he was rear-ended and pushed off the highway, where his vehicle rolled over into the ditch. Our client complained of injuries to his neck, back and shoulder. Our client works in agriculture and loads and unloads fruit as his employment.
He treated with several local medical facilities, and obtained surgery for his back at an area surgical center. Our client settled his claim for the BI policy limits of $100,000 for the tortfeasor owner, and $25,000 for the tortfeasor driver, for a total of $125,000 settlement.
