Serious injuries are life-changing. When you or someone you love experiences an unfortunate injury, it can result in severe physical, emotional, and financial consequences. However, in this darkness a personal injury lawyer can help you navigate your situation and ensure you’re getting the care and compensation you need.
Streed’s client had no choice but to take her case to trial when she was only offered $35,000 on her car crash case—where her injuries included a herniated cervical disc that required surgery and caused her to close down the child day-care business she had operated for 20+ years– largely because the defendant driver (whose vehicle caused the rear-end collision) claimed Streed’s client could not possibly have been injured because the collision (or “tap” as the defendant called it) did not cause any structural damage to her vehicle. Medical issues were hotly contested as was just about every aspect of the case. In addition, several months before this trial, Streed’s client was involved in a subsequent crash, where her vehicle was totaled out. After a week long trial in Washington County a jury returned a verdict that resulted in a final judgement, after taxing costs and interest, of over $300,000 in favor of Streed’s client.
