Case Conclusion Date: 06.26.2013
Practice Area: Personal injury
Outcome: Verdict -- $226,000
Description: My 18 year old client was a very nice young man and was injured when he was rear-ended by a careless driver. As a result of the crash, he injured his facet joints in his lower back. The insurance company (Allstate) low-balled my client because the crash only resulted in minor damage (less than $1,000). The pre-trial offer was $25,000. The verdict was $226,000. After post-trial motions and an award of fees and costs the final judgment was around $390,000.
