T.S vs. L.B

Posted on December 15th, 2010 by Zane Cagle

Plaintiff was rear ended in a motor vehicle crash  and sought treatment with her family care physician the next morning. As the days progresses, she developed pain in her neck and it was discovered by her orthopedic surgeon that she had disc bulges at the C4-5 and C5-6 .  After conservative treatment and exhaustion of all non-surgical remedies, it was determined that only surgery would be beneficial-a two level anterior discectomy at C4-5 and C5-6.

Plaintiff did not present evidence of past medical bills or loss wages, but only submitted costs of the the possibility of a future neck surgery. Her family physician stated Plaintiff denied neck pain the day after the crash, but her orthopedic surgeon discovered disc bulges at two levels.

St. Louis County jury voted unanimously to award plaintiff $125,000.
