$180,000 Settlement for Man with Herniated Disc
Personal injury lawyer Joseph Sullivan recently negotiated a $180,000 settlement for a pedestrian knocked down by a car backing up to pull into a parking space. As a result of the fall, the man sustained a herniated disc in his lumbar spine (lower back), for which he received physical therapy, epidural steroid injections and trigger point injections. The insurance company claimed that the accident was the client's fault because he was crossing the street between blocks and that the man was not seriously injured in the accident, but rather any injuries he had were the result of a work place accident he had years before the pedestrian knock down accident.
