A recent personal injury lawsuit, spawned by a rear-end accident, has been settled for $169,289. Sally Gordon was driving on a highway when her car was struck from behind by Morteza Hosseini. Gordon’s Honda Accord sustained $1,800 worth of damage, and Gordon herself suffered a serious injury to her cervical spine, in her neck.
As a result of the rear-ender, Gordon sustained neck pain, left trapezius muscle pain, left arm pain, and radiating numbness and tingling in her left arm and hand. An MRI taken after the accident showed a 3.5 mm disc bulge in her spine, and a nerve-block procedure revealed nerve damage in her neck. She sought compensation for her serious and prolonged neck injury, for her medical bills. Hosseini’s attorneys argued that Gordon’s injuries were not as severe as she claimed and that her arm symptoms were caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. The jury did not agree and awarded Gordon economic damages, both past and future ($53,289 and $86,000, respectively), and non-economic damages of $30,000. Interestingly, Gordon’s attorneys had her car re-inspected after repairs had been done, where it was found that the internal rear bumper had not been replaced as was required; Hosseini’s insurance carrier paid Gordon another $369 for the additional property damage, just before the trial.
