$55,000 Settlement for a Driver after Striking a Car from Behind

by Jared Staver in Auto Accidents, Settlements

The attorneys with Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. aided a woman when she was involved in a rear-end collision. Apparently, the accident was initiated by another driver’s attempt to drive underneath a viaduct without sufficient clearance. This caused the driver’s roof to crash into the viaduct. The driver then stopped abruptly, which resulted in the woman striking the other driver’s rear end of the vehicle. The woman’s airbags deployed and several windows were shattered. She was taken to The University of Chicago Medicine Hospital, where she was treated for injuries to her neck, back, right shoulder, and lower and upper extremities. This required extensive physical therapy and an epidural injection. After retaining Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., the case reached a $55,000 settlement for her injuries, loss of normal life, pain, and suffering.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
