Litigation Type - Car Accidents
Client Injury - Neck Injuries
Our client was involved in a car accident while on the job. The collision occurred when an oncoming vehicle turned left into our client’s path. Our client suffered serious and permanent injuries to his neck that require ongoing treatment.
The other driver’s insurer disputed liability for the accident up until the eve of the trial when they finally admitted liability. Susan Holden took her client’s case to trial to argue our client’s injuries that were also disputed by the defense. The trial lasted four days in Hennepin County after which the jury returned its verdict in favor of our client.
The jury awarded 100% of all past and future medical treatment as well as the lost wages and future anticipated lost wages. The final verdict awarded by the jury was $510,561. Prior to trial, the defense made only a settlement offer of $50,000, forcing Holden to take this case to trial to fight for the rights of her injured client. Not only did she win compensation for our client’s injuries and his pain and suffering, but she also won compensation for all of his significant future anticipated medical expenses.
