A wife was driving and her husband was a passenger when they were rear-ended while making a left-hand turn. The wife complained of elbow, neck and back pain, but the X-rays were negative, while the husband complained of low back pain.
About five months after the accident, the wife began receiving chiropractic care for her neck and back, and the husband began receiving chiropractic care for his back. The insurance company argued the chiropractic care was not reasonable for the accident. Attorney Shawn Brock filed a case and at mediation, the wife received $36,000.00 and the husband received $7,000.00.
