CAR ACCIDENT REAR END AT NAPERVILLE RD. AND BUTTERFIELD - EXCESS VERDICT: $806,129.11
Our client was stopped a red light at Butterfield and Naperville Road in Wheaton, Illinois when she was rear-ended by the Defendant. She sustained a concussion, herniated discs in her cervical and thoracic spine, and worsening of a pre-existing lumbar herniation. She underwent physical therapy and trigger point injections. Her doctor recommended epidural steroid injections and testified that her injuries are permanent, painful, and likely to get worse over time. Prior to trial the Plaintiff offered to settle for the Defendant's policy limits of $100,000.00. The best offer from the Defense was $25,000.00. Trial lasted 4 days and the DuPage County jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00. The Defendant's insurance company, State Farm, paid the entire verdict plus costs.
