$2,250,000 settlement, Plaintiff, a 41 year old woman while working as a medical escort, was involved in a motor vehicle accident. She was a seat belted motor vehicle operator that was struck in the rear by the defendant vehicle. The plaintiff suffered injuries which required neck and back surgery. Summary Judgment was granted on liability on June 11, 2009. This established that as of that date the defendant was determined to be at fault by the Court. This is significant in that should the case have gone to trial and the jury rendered a verdict, the defendant would have to pay the verdict plus interest retroactively to 2009 when the summary judgment was granted. After extensive mediation the case was settled in the amount of $2,250,000.00.
