As he came to a stop, another driver was speeding as she approached and did not yield. She rear-ended the trailer attached to the man’s pickup, and he was seriously injured. Right before the accident, our client had developed unrelated problems with his neck.
The accident exacerbated those injuries and added new injuries to be treated. As he recovered, his doctors determined that he needed cervical fusion surgery, physical therapy, pain management, and other treatments. He experienced a great deal of ongoing pain and was unable to do many of the things he had done before the accident. The man contacted attorney Michael Koch for help.
Mike reassured him that they would work together to pursue the best possible outcome. The defense fought the claim and argued the accident wasn’t responsible for our client’s medical needs, but Mike used his doctors' testimony to present the facts.
With Mike’s help, our client’s case settled in his favor for $380,000. The settlement would allow him to continue his medical treatment and pain management therapies, and cope with the ongoing limitations of his injuries. Our client was relieved to be able to pay off his bills and move on with his life, and Mike was happy to have helped.
