Soft Tissue (Whiplash) Injury: $350,000 Verdict

A local business-woman suffered soft tissue (muscle and ligament) injuries when her vehicle was struck head on by a drunk driver. She was unable to work full-time, and she lost some cherished sports activities. We won the trial, then filed suit against the client’s insurance company to collect the award from UM/UIM coverage. (Note, we also obtained a “first party” settlement of $35,000 for physical therapy benefits, in a separate lawsuit.)
