SETTLEMENT: $2.4 Million
VENUE: St. Clair County, IL
DATE: September 27, 2018
Our client was rear-ended by a semi-tractor trailer on Interstate 55, and suffered severe neck pain, which required surgery and continued pain management. Our client’s medical bills were $98,000. She was able to continue working, and therefore had no wage loss. The defendants originally settled the case for half-a-million, with a different law firm.
Then we got involved. We got the settlement set aside, got summary judgment against the trucking company, set the case for trial – – and on the eve of trial, the trucking company settled for $2.4 million.
