SA was driving down an arterial street when a vehicle attempted to make a left-hand turn in front of him. SA could not avoid the collision in time and struck the other vehicle in a T-bone accident.
The defense tried to assert that the accident was SA’s fault and that he was speeding at the time of the collision. However, after our motion, the Court granted summary judgment finding that the T-bone accident was actually entirely the other driver’s fault.
SA required a lumbar fusion, and the cause of this was disputed because he had a history of low back pain. Although SA visited the emergency room for a dirt bike accident that caused low back pain five days before the T-bone car accident, our expert physician testified that the lumbar fusion was in fact, caused by the auto accident. The defense tendered their $100,000 insurance policy limits to SA.
