$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 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.
