My client’s truck was rear-ended while he was sitting at a red light on SR 200, west of Ocala, Fl. As a result of the crash, our client was unable to work as a gardener for a period of time and was diagnosed with having injured his neck and back.
On my client’s behalf I argued that my client had preexisting arthritis problems in his neck, which were severely aggravated by the accident. The insurance company argued that the accident only caused my client some sprains and strains which were minor in nature.
While I suggested that a lawsuit be filed, my client wished to return to his home in Puerto Rico and directed us to accept the insurance companies offer of $35,000 to settle his case.
