Plaintiff resides in Abington, MA – Accident occurred in Abington, MA
The Plaintiff, age 52, was involved in a motor vehicle accident when the Defendant went through a stop sign and struck her vehicle. The Plaintiff sustained injuries to her wrist, ankle, back and neck wherein she underwent extensive treatment. The insurance company’s initial offer on the case was $12,000. The position of the insurance company was that the Plaintiff’s injuries were pre-existing. The other issue in the case was that the Plaintiff’s SUV only sustained $75 in damage. Attorney Sharon D. Sybel retained the services of a physician who examined the Plaintiff and reviewed all of her medical records. The doctor was able to opine that although there was minor damage to the Plaintiff’s vehicle, the position of the Plaintiff’s hands on the steering wheel and her foot on the brake at the time of impact, was the cause of her injuries at the time of the accident.
After testimony from the Plaintiff and Defendant at the arbitration hearing, the arbitrator awarded the Plaintiff $172,044.50.
