What Happened: Our client suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck and shoulder when the vehicle he was driving struck another car whose driver had made an improper left turn across our client’s lane of travel. Our client suffered nagging neck and shoulder pain that only subsided after many months. Our client’s medical bills amounted to approximately $10,000.

Key Legal Strategy: The insurance company failed to offer any reasonable compensation to resolve our client's injury claims prior to trial. We prepared the case for trial and moved forward.
