$480,000.00 Settlement

Our client stopped her Ford Explorer SUV behind a school bus so children could cross. A woman driving over 60 miles an hour in a van failed to stop for the school bus and slammed into the back of our client’s vehicle. Our client herniated a disc in her neck at C5-6, tore the rotator cuff and labrum in her shoulder, developed a hematoma on her thigh and damaged the TMJ joint in her jaw. She underwent neck surgery to repair the herniated disc and fuse her spine, two shoulder surgeries to repair her shoulder, and a surgery to drain the blood from the hematoma on her thigh. The jury awarded her damages for lost wages, past and future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
