$1,950,000 – Motor Vehicle Accident – Sideswipe – Neck Injury

Plaintiff, a 44-year-old exterminator, was stopped at a light when his car was struck by a truck exiting parking space. There was very little damage to the plaintiff’s car. Plaintiff sustained injuries to his cervical spine and ultimately had a cervical fusion surgery that had to be revised. Defendants argued that the impact was too minor to cause any serious injury. The case was settled at mediation for $1,950,000.00 by HKD partner Jordan Hecht.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
