$2,960,000 Verdict Rendered in Car Accident
Our client, a 47 year old emergency room physician, was involved in a head on collision while on a vacation in St Augustine, Florida. Immediately following the accident, our client was taken to the hospital and complained of neck pain. However, within one week he was able to return to work.
Over four years following the accident, our client underwent neck surgery to repair a herniated disk injury that he sustained in his automobile accident. The driver that caused the accident was underinsured and therefore a lawsuit was filed against our client’s own automobile insurance company (Nationwide Insurance Co.).
Prior to trial, Nationwide offered $300,000 to settle the lawsuit. After a seven day jury trial, the jury returned a verdict in the amount of $2,960,000.
