Settlement Amount: $182,500
Chris contacted Brett McCandlis Brown & Conner for help after being involved in two moderate impact auto collisions.
Chris did not immediately recognize the extent of his injuries and failed to seek immediate medical treatment. He was diagnosed with cervical and lumbar strains by his physician.
While these “whiplash” type injuries typically resolve quickly, Chris’s condition deteriorated and ultimately his injuries prevented him from returning to work as a welder. His inability to return to work resulted in a significant wage loss claim, atypical in a “whiplash” type case.
While the two insurance companies for the defendants initially disputed Chris’s disability, after lengthy negotiations and detailed documentation of Chris’ personal injuries and claim by attorney David Brown, the insurance companies relented and ultimately agreed to resolve Chris’s claim for a total of $182,500.
