Case Summary

Morgan & Morgan’s attorneys, Isabel Barroso & Benjamin Abdulnour, represented a client who sustained injuries to his lower back in a three-car accident, resulting in a $138,000 verdict on his behalf.

Case Study

Our client, Mr. Vazquez, was a restrained passenger when the defendant blew through a stop sign and caused a three-car accident. Mr. Vazquez complained of immediate pain in his lower back and was taken by EMS to the ER. Decades before the event, he had endured a lumbar surgery, and the defense tried to argue that any pain he was experiencing was due to this previous condition. Mr. Vasquez eventually underwent surgery on his left SI joint, which resolved his pain but didn’t fully compensate him for his pain. The trial was a contentious debate over liability, severity, and causation, but the jury came back with a verdict in excess of the policy limits, triggering our right to fees and allowing our client to move on from the situation.
