After rejecting an $85,000 offer, our Plaintiff, a thirty-eight year old New Jersey resident, and his attorneys, Michael L. Saile, Jr. and John F. Cordisco, of Cordisco & Saile, LLC decided to try the Bucks County auto accident case in front of an arbitrator. On behalf of their client, Cordisco & Saile, LLC obtained a verdict of $1,377,000.
Our client suffered traumatic disc injuries when he was rear-ended by a teen driver who admitted she was driving distracted by texting and changing songs on her phone while operating her father’s JEEP. The man underwent extensive physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, and pain management injections that brought him little relief. He finally required surgical intervention.
At the time of the crash, our client was only 33 years old. His life revolved around physical fitness and athleticism. He enjoyed weightlifting, running, riding ATVs, martial arts, and hiking. Because of his injuries, he could no longer participate in the activities that filled most of his leisure time. His neurosurgeon placed physical restrictions on him including restrictions on moving, driving, sitting, standing, and lifting objects. He was also unable to perform his job because of difficulties sitting and standing, and had to seek employment in a less lucrative and less enjoyable position.
The client’s doctors say he will continue to suffer pain for the rest of his life and will never attain the level of fitness he was at before the crash. It is also likely, he will require at least one additional surgery in the future.
While the insurance company recognized his physical injuries, their monetary offer did not accurately reflect how dramatically the man’s life had changed following the crash. Our team knew the client deserved compensation not just for his injuries but for the drastic, negative impact they had on his life. The attorneys of Cordisco & Saile, LLC took the case to arbitration and were able to win him the compensation he deserved.
