Our client was rear ended by another driver who took his foot off the brake and hit a car behind ours. Since our client was over 70 years old, he had a long history of prior neck and back problems. Three months before the accident, his doctor ordered an MRI and physical therapy on his lower back. This was a minimal impact collision to his pickup truck and there was no visible property damage. About 30 months after accident, he had surgery on his low back. The defense vigorously fought the lawsuit and hired a biomechanical accident reconstruction expert and also sent our client to another doctor to be evaluated on whether the back surgery was caused by the wreck. After depositions and discovery, the parties settled the case for $120,000 one week before trial.
