The large delivery truck rearended Gloria Seidule's client, Sue, as she was stopped at a stoplight. The impact pushed her vehicle 50 feet. The driver of the truck said his brakes had failed.
Sue went by ambulance because her right arm went numb immediately after the crash. In the weeks to come, her pain and numbness only got worse.
On top of the injuries from the accident, Sue was also suffering from a neurological disease that affected her other arm. The combination of the crash and the underlying condition made it impossible for Sue to work.
The case settled for a confidential amount after a pre-suit mediation. The recovery compensated her lost past and future wages and for the future effect on her quality of life.
