In 2010, our client slowed down to stop at a red light when her vehicle was rear ended by a large utility truck. The impact caused the client’s vehicle to hit the car in front of her. She was taken by ambulance to an area hospital and was admitted for overnight evaluation and treatment for her neck and back pain. She later sought medical care at a physican’s office and treated for several months in 2010.
Several months after the accident, due to her positive MRI findings and severe continual pain, she underwent arthroscopic laser surgery at L4-L5 and L5-S1 bilaterally at an area Medical Center.The client received a settlement in the amount of $175,000.
