Nurse Suffered Spinal Injuries After Being Rear-ended on I-95 in Virginia
Spinal cord injuries are often very serious and painful. Recently a woman from Virginia was awarded $730,000 in settlement of a case in which she suffered serious back injuries.
The case followed a rear-end collision on I-95 north in Spotsylvania County on March 18, 2012, Virginia Lawyers Weekly reported.
Two people were injured in the impact. One of them contracted complex regional pain syndrome two weeks after the collision. This is an extremely painful condition and the woman was unable to work as a nurse for more than six months after the collision.
A spinal cord stimulator had to be implanted in the woman’s lower back and her CRPS symptoms improved. A case was file in the U.S. District Court in Richmond. The plaintiff was awarded $730,000 in a settlement. The other plaintiff suffered back, hip and shoulder injuries and was awarded $150,000.
The attorneys for the plaintiff were John D. Ayres of Fredericksburg and Henry Gare from Jacksonville, Florida. All cases are different and we cannot guarantee the same result in your case.
