August 2022: JT Legal Group won a $435,000 settlement for a rear-end collision that had taken place in Los Angeles in June 2019.
On June 18, 2019, a significant rear-end collision in Los Angeles took place at a stop sign. The client, represented by JT Legal Group, was waiting to turn left when they were unexpectedly hit by the defendant’s vehicle.
The collision resulted in injuries to the plaintiff that caused severe pain in his neck, back, and shoulder. These injuries inhibited him from completing his usual everyday activities, and as such, the client’s quality of life decreased. Moreover, the pain resulted in several restless and sleepless nights. In turn, the client is now suffering from anxiety and depression. For pain management, the plaintiff has had to have several medical treatments, including epidural injections and physical therapy.
The turmoil the client has endured from the accident cannot be understated. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, occupants are ejected from the car in 23% of fatalities resulting from passenger vehicle accidents. Moreover,
as stated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2020, of crash fatalities, 62% of them were passenger vehicle occupants. Fortunately, the damages from the accident were not fatal.
These victims don’t often receive any other forms of justice other than economic justice.
