    Outcome:
    $367,000.00 Jury Verdict
    Description:
    Client sustained mild traumatic brain injury in motor vehicle crash in 2005. The brain injury was missed by client's neuropsychologist, and then that report was relied upon by her other doctors, all denying she had sustained a brain injury. She continued to have cognitive and balance problems, which are permanent. One year later, believing she had no brain injury due to her multiple doctors denying it, she got on a moped, lost balance and went into oncoming traffic, causing fractures to both arms, fractured ribs, and other injuries. Client's first attorney withdrew two weeks before trial after client refused $50,000 offer from Farmers Insurance. Plaintiff then hired lawyer Joshua Shulman who referred the case to Dr. DeShaw, who tried the case. After DeShaw took over the case, the offer from Farmers went up to $200,000 one week before trial. The jury verdict after a two week trial was for $367,000, all for the injuries from the first collision in 2005, and did not find the second collision in 2006 to be the responsibility of defendant Halsey Automotive Inc.
