05 Aug $1,250,000
$1,250,000 will be paid in damages to former U.S. Marineafter she was rear-ended.
Plaintiff was on leave, home in the United States, when she was rear-ended. The defense pulled every trick in the book to try and discredit plaintiff. They argued the impact was not enough to sustain the neck surgery she was forced to undergo and even conducted surveillance of her. Mike Della was able to argue that her usual activities included a 5 mile ruck with over 75 pounds of equipment while in the military, so the chairs she was “caught” picking up on surveillance, would only be significant for a lesser woman. Ready for trial, the defense made a last ditch effort to settle, which they did for $1.25 million.
