Kelly Law offices, P.C. negotiated a $60,000.00 settlement for a 43 year old woman who sustained the aggravation of a preexisting back condition in a low impact collision. The client was traveling on I-94 in the Chicago area, when she was caught in a bumper to bumper traffic jam. She received a minor bump from the vehicle behind her. Due to the minimal damage both vehicles left the scene without reporting the incident to the Chicago Police Department.
The client had suffered prior back problems, but she had been symptom free for years. However the impact caused the symptoms to reappear requiring physical therapy and pain killing medication. The client was unemployed but all of her medical bills were paid for by her no-fault carrier. The settlement represented recovery for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
