Hupy and Abraham's client was involved in a low-velocity impact in which her vehicle sustained only $550 worth of damages. However, the injuries she suffered in the accident led to a total disk replacement surgery in her lower back. Prior to the accident, she had a history of medical treatment for lower back pains. The defense alleged that the forces of the accident were insufficient to cause the plaintiff’s injuries and that she wasn’t actually injured due to the collision. At mediation, the defendants offered $13,000.00. Attorney Shawn Brock and his associate were able to resolve the case for $175,000.00.
