for damages and injuries sustained in car crash.
Rear end car collision in heavy stop and go traffic where Jim’s client, an older person with a history of back issues, re-injured their back and eventually required surgery as a result of the collision.
The at fault driver’ insurance company challenged whether the car collision could have caused the injuries given the force of the collision as well as the client’s previous history of back issues and prior back surgeries.
Evidence was obtained by Jim and presented to the other driver’s attorney and insurance company through the discovery process and the parties agreed to try and resolve the dispute through mediation rather than a protracted and expensive trial.
At mediation an agreement was made to pay Jim’ client $250,000.00 as fair, just and reasonable compensation for the driver’s negligence and the consequences of that negligence.
