Fractured Vertebra Compensated
Fractured vertebra compensated. My clients, septuagenarians, were rear-ended on the expressway. The air bags deployed. Both were injured, although the wife was the most severely hurt, sustaining a fractured vertebra in her neck. This took a long time to heal. Upon her completion of treatment, we were able to increase the settlement value through dogged determination and threatened litigation. Ultimately, the settlement was well into the five figure range.
