The client in this case filed a lawsuit against the driver of another car after the rear-end collision caused her severe back pain including disc problems.
On July 10, 2008, our client was riding as a passenger in a 1997 Saturn sedan on the eastbound 91 freeway near the University Avenue off ramp. The traffic ahead began to slow down and the Saturn was struck from behind at about 65 mph by a truck driver. The collision caused the Saturn to spin out of control and hit a cement divider.
The driver of the truck was at fault in the accident, police officials said. Our client underwent several painful surgeries and extensive treatment for lumbar radiculitis including a discectomy, disc fusion, artificial disc replacement and physical therapy.
