Our client was rear-ended while stopped at a red light. The force of the collision required our client to have neck surgery. We were able to obtain a settlement for the full amount of the at-fault driver’s auto insurance policy limits. Afterwards, we pursued our client underinsured motorist benefits from his auto insurance. In order to achieve the full damages for our client, we took the client’s case to trial arguing that our client’s injuries had been aggravated requiring surgery and altering the client’s life. Following the trial, the jury returned a verdict in the amount of $348,685.91. Prior to filing the lawsuit, the highest pre-suit offer made by our client’s auto insurance company was $15,000.
