Kenneth Elwood represented a 23-year-old woman who suffered lower back disc injuries requiring a discectomy. The motor vehicle accident occurred when a commercial pickup truck made a left turn across her path into a strip mall. The other driver and his passengers claimed that our client was speeding and had run a red light. The defense also claimed that our client’s herniated disc was preexisting. Through an accident reconstruction expert, Ken was able to prove that the accident was the defendant’s fault. The case settled prior to trial for $340,000.
