Partner Mark Altemose Recovers $775,000 for 29-Year-Old Man Who Suffered Herniated Lumbar Disc in an Auto Accident
Our client, a 29-year-old man who is the CEO of two companies, was struck head-on in a motor vehicle accident. Approximately six weeks later he began experiencing lower back pain and numbness down his leg and was diagnosed with a herniated disc. He underwent surgery but was left with scar tissue around a nerve. As a result, he continues to experience almost daily pain. While he remains able to work, he must limit his physical activities. He is likely to require revision surgery at the location of the prior surgery. He incurred $14,194 in past medical expenses.
We made a claim against the other driver and recovered the $25,000 liability limits and then pursued an underinsured motorist’s claim. The UIM claim settled for the sum of $750,000, providing our client with a total recovery of $775,000.
