$225,000.00 (Auto Accident)
$225,000 Recovered for Man Injured in Minor Impact Motor Vehicle Collision. In 2009, attorney Russell Kohn recovered $225,000 for a client who sustained injuries when he washead-on motor vehicle collision. The force of the collision was hotly disputed due to the minimal property damage to the vehicles. Defendant claimed he was stopped behind plaintiff at the red light, and took his foot off the brake and merely rolled into the rear of the plaintiff's vehicle. Plaintiff claimed the collision caused an aggravation of a degenerative neck condition, requiring him to undergo discectomy and fusion surgery. Following surgery he was required to lose time from work, as well as undergo physical therapy. This matter was successfully resolved first by settlement with the liable party's insurance company for their $50,000 policy limit, and then through mediation of the underinsured motorist coverage claim for an additional $175,000.
