CSK Miami Partner Richard Adams and Jacksonville Associate Christopher Walsh recently obtained a very favorable verdict after a week-long trial in Jacksonville, Florida. The case involved a rear-end accident with admitted liability. The defendant was in the course of his employment and driving a company van. The plaintiff claimed significant injury and had undergone a one level cervical fusion. Following surgery, the Plaintiff still complained of continued neck and back pain and was therefore on a lifetime course of pain management. Plaintiff’s past economics were over $200,000, and at trial, Plaintiff asked the jury for $1.8 million. The jury found no permanent injury and awarded Plaintiff only $15,900, which represented 6 weeks of the initial chiropractic treatment for a neck strain/sprain
