The Plaintiff was driving home when the defendant pulled out in front of her at an intersection in Forest.
In addition to mild cuts and bruises, the Plaintiff suffered stress fractures in her right foot. A stress fracture is an incomplete fracture in a bone, which typically exhibits symptoms less severe than a complete fracture. Doctors treated her conservatively with a 5-session course of physical therapy, home exercises and a foot brace. At the time of trial, the Plaintiff’s medical bills were just over $10,000. The defense admitted liability but contested the extent of the Plaintiff’s injuries.
The defense offered $33,000 to settle before trial but the client followed the firm’s recommendation not to settle the case for less than it was worth. The jury deliberated for less than fifteen minutes and returned a verdict for $50,000.
