Case Conclusion Date: 05.13.2013
Practice Area: Personal injury
Outcome: Verdict -- $150,000
Description: My client was injured when a careless driver pulled out in front of her. She sustained serious injuries to her lower back. Due to the obvious nature of her injuries, prior to trial the court granted a motion and awarded approximately $225,000 to my client for her medical bills and future medical care. The insurance company opposed my client's motion. The trial proceeded for pain and suffering only and the jury awarded $150,000. After post-trial motions the total judgment was around $493,000. The pre-trial offer was only $100,000.
