Outcome: $250,000.00
Description: Our 42 year old client was diagnosed with a Chiari malformation found on a cervical MRI. Chiari malformations have long been believed to be congenital. In fact, we were able to demonstrate through the utilization of two expert witnesses that an asymptomatic Chiari malformation can become symptomatic as a result of trauma. The insurance company’s highest offer prior to us filing suit was $7,200. They came to this low sum by claiming that this was a minor soft tissue injury that pre-existed the car accident.

This defense was mitigated primarily with the use of an accident reconstruction specialist. The insurance company’s initial offer was $6,500. They reached this sum by alleging our client was 50% responsible for the accident. Our client sustained soft tissue injuries in his lumbar spine and a central disc protrusion between vertebra L4 and L5. He underwent a relatively minor outpatient laminotomy/foraminotomy.

Outcome: $180,000.00
Description: Initial offer in this case was for $6500. Travelers Insurance refused to acknowledge that our client’s injuries were caused by their client’s negligence.

This was not the case since our client was asymptomatic prior to the car wreck.
