Motor Vehicle Crash – Distracted Driver
We represented an orthopedic nurse who was rear-ended by a distracted driver in Maury County, Tennessee. Although she did not suffer any broken bones in the wreck, the force of the impact aggravated and underlying condition in her neck that resulted in a herniated cervical disc requiring surgery. Our client incurred approximately $50,000 in medical bills. We filed suit on behalf of our client in order to subpoena the at-fault driver’s cell phone records and take depositions. The defense argued throughout the case that the plaintiff’s neck condition pre-existed the wreck and was not caused by the Defendant’s carelessness. However, after we took the at-fault driver’s deposition, the defense agreed to settle the case for $150,000.
