Our client was the restrained driver of a minivan traveling southbound on Hillsborough Ave. She slowed to make a left turn and as she turned, the defendant came from behind her and slammed into the driver’s side of her vehicle. As a result, our client suffered headaches and pain in her neck, back, and abdomen. A lawsuit was filed against the driver and the owner of the defendant’s vehicle. Records were exchanged and depositions were taken. We filed a Proposal for Settlement for $300,000.00 to settle the case against one defendant only and it was accepted; we also filed another Proposal for Settlement for $75,000.00 to settle the claim against the remaining defendant and it was also accepted. The client received a total settlement amount of $375,000.
