JT Legal Group Recovers $1.5 Million From a Rear-End
August 2022: Valeo, CA: JT Legal Group, a law corporation specializing in personal injury successfully secures $1.5 Million from a rear-end collision.
This litigation arose out of a collision which occurred on September 4th 2018 in Valeo, CA. Our client was driving down freeway 80 and as traffic slowly came to a stop, he noticed the defendant behind him failing to brake and immediately swerving into the left shoulder. The defendant failed to merge into the shoulder in time and aggressively rear-ended our client which forced our client to rear-end the vehicle in front of him.
The impact caused severe injuries including pain in his neck, back of his head, bilaterally in his lower back and thoracic spine, and pain in his right shoulder, right elbow, and right arm. He felt weakness in his right arm and right hand; it was difficult for him to complete day-to-day tasks.
The injuries he endured, required him to receive an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, lap band surgery, and once his weight was to an acceptable level, he received an anterior lumbar discectomy and fusion.
Our client will have permanent injuries for the rest of his life, as he will never fully recover after his fusion surgery, and he will have a plate in his neck which will affect his range of motion.
It is estimated that nearly 500,000 people are injured in a rear-end accident while 1,700 die. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 87 percent of these crashes are caused by distracted drivers. It is crucial to always keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you and limit your distractions.
