The firm represented a 48-year-old welder who was rear ended on I240 while in stop-and-go traffic. The property damage to the client’s truck was extremely light and barely visible, but the client’s head struck the back window out of his truck. Initially, it was thought to be a soft tissue injury in nature but was soon discovered by MRI the client had a ruptured disk in his neck. Surgery was performed and the client was assigned a 28 percent permanent anatomic rating. Medical bills exceeded $90.000. The case was fought by the defense every step of the way. Mediation was unsuccessful due to the liability carrier’s reluctance to accept full responsibility for the plaintiff’s injuries. Trial was had in Shelby County Tennessee before a jury over three days. That jury unanimously awarded the plaintiff $385,000. Defendant tried to overturn the verdict by post-trial motion which was denied. The firm sought and received post-judgment interest, collecting the judgement of over $400,000 for our client.
