One of the more difficult types of cases we handle is what we call the LIST or low impact, soft tissue car crash case. Often times, jurors, adjusters and defense attorneys have a hard time understanding how someone could be so injured in a car crash when the damage to the vehicles involved is relatively minor. It is our job as Plaintiff’s lawyers to prove that element called causation, linking the injuries to the crash.
In a recent case, our client, a lovely middle-aged woman, was hit from behind in stop and go traffic on the highway. There was not much visible damage to her car, or the car that hit her. The police were not even called to the scene. Shortly after the crash, our client began experiencing severe lower back pain that radiated to her legs. After years of therapy, tests, injections, massage, acupuncture and living through a life of misery, she ultimately underwent a lumbar fusion to repair the injured disc in her back, and fortunately made an excellent physical recovery and returned to a much happier way of life.
The insurance company initially did not believe our client was injured from this crash. After they made a very low offer pre-suit, of less than $10,000.00, we successfully litigated the case, resulting in a mid-six figure result for our client.
