The firm gets a positive result for an auto accident victim. We are pleased to report our recent binding arbitration result for one of our auto accident victims. A woman in her 40’s was involved in a collision that caused neck and low back injury. She incurred about $10,000 in medical bills but no wage loss.
Our client was concerned about her future medical needs and any further medical expenses she would incur. She had no health insurance.
The insurance carrier for the other driver contended, through expert testimony, that our client would have only had 4 to 6 weeks of minor pain from the automobile accident, and that any further treatment and symptoms were due to a degenerative spinal condition that existed for many years prior to the accident. The insurance carrier argued that our client’s treatment for a period of 1 year was excessive as it related to this accident, and only offered $13,000 in settlement of her case.
Our attorneys were able to obtain a $70,000 binding arbitration result that made for a speedy resolution of her claim without appeal and puts her back on her feet. We salute Michael Bock and the office staff on a job well done.
