In April, Partner Robert Y. Cook of Levinson Axelrod, P.A. recovered a $100,000 policy limits settlement for a client injured in a motor vehicle accident.
According to court documents, the 51-year-old victim was rear-ended while stopped in traffic in November 2017. The Plaintiff had a prior motor vehicle accident after which he was left with four bulging discs in his neck. It was alleged that the four bulges became disc herniations because they were aggravated by the most recent rear-end collision.
As a result of his injuries, Robert’s client underwent four epidural injections in his neck. The Plaintiff had also been treating with a chiropractic for neck pain up to two years before the crash.
While a radiologist for the Defense opined that only one disc worsened after the crash, Robert was able to negotiate a $100,000 settlement for the limits of the defendant’s auto insurance policy. The policy limits recovery will help compensate our client for his pain and suffering.
