$100,000.00 Settlement – Auto Accident
Plaintiff, a commercial airline pilot, was rear-ended while at a stop light by Defendant-driver who failed to reduce speed. Plaintiff suffered a L5-S1 disc herniation with left-sided S1 radiculopathy and was given a 5% whole body partial permanent impairment rating.
Liability insurer was initially unwilling to recognize the significant permanent reduction in the Plaintiff’s earning capacity caused by his back pain and the need for narcotic pain medication, both of which kept him from flying for significant periods of time. Suit was filed.
Claim settled during mediation prior to trial.
Attorney: Scott Scurfield
