Driver Gets $12,500 for Herniated Disc; State Farm Pays $10,000
Maria (not real name) was driving her car in South Miami. A driver crashed into her. The other driver got a ticket for careless driving.
She then treated for a couple of months with a chiropractor, where she received therapy for her injuries.
She had an MRI of her neck (cervical spine). It showed straightening of the cervical spine suggesting muscle spasm.
At C6-C7, there was a posterolateral disk herniation. Neither the radiologist nor the chiropractor stated the size of the disc herniation.
An MRI of her thoracic spine showed 5 annular disk bulges at T7-T8, T8-T9, T9-T10, T11-T12, and T12-L1. Like most clients with a herniated disc, she did not want epidural steroid injections or neck surgery.
Lady Wins $134,600 Against Driver Insured With State Farm
This is not my case. Jessica Guillen sued a driver insured with State Farm. She claimed that the car accident caused her cervical and lumbar disc bulges and herniations.
She treated with a pain management doctor, who recommended future injection therapy. His opinion was that she would likely need surgery in the future.
State Farm’s medical expert said that the diagnostic results (likely MRIs) showed that Jessica’s spine had degenerative conditions that weren’t related to the auto accident.
A jury awarded her $134,600. $67,600 of that amount was for her pain and suffering.
The verdict was on 2/25/2014. The case is Jessica Guillen v. Maupin.
