Our client was driving his vehicle. He stopped at a red light when he was rear-ended by the defendant. He initially went to a local hospital where he was checked out and released. He soon after followed up with a physician’s office for pain. He received therapy and pain management for about eight months. Due to continued pain in his upper extremities, he went to another medical clinic to get a specialist’s opinion. After examination and due to radiographic findings of a disk herniation he was recommended for additional treatment.
The Defense counsel was only offering a $50,000.00 settlement; however, with our steadfast determination and trial drawing near, we managed to settle the case for $225,000.
