Women Receives Policy Limits After Car Hit from Behind
Our client was driving her car in Apple Valley when she stopped at an intersection. While waiting for the traffic to clear, another vehicle slammed into the back of her car. She immediately began to feel back and shoulder pain. A short time later, she began to feel foot and leg pain, which she reported to her doctors. An MRI subsequently revealed a lumbar herniation with lumbar spine degenerative changes. As the pain worsened, her treating doctors decided to perform a minimally invasive laminotomy and foraminotomy. The client could not work for several months while recovering from the surgery. The case settled for the $100,000 limits in insurance coverage.
