$1.5 Million Case Victory for This Man Following a Car Crash




After a rear-end collision in September 2018, one man sought compensation for his extensive, permanent injuries. He took it to court. After four years, he’s finally won his settlement: $1.5 Million. Though the path he took to his win was treacherous, and the road to recovery he’ll have to face afterwards won’t be a simple walk in the park—it is safe to say he has gotten his justice.

The accident occurred on freeway 80 in Valero, CA. The victim was driving down the road, which a traffic jam had slightly blocked. So naturally, he slowed to a stop. He likely reasoned that everybody else would have the same common courtesy, not realizing until it was too late that a car behind him had not only failed to break but was flying at him full speed.

The aggressor’s car swerved into the left shoulder, failing to merge and smashing into the victim’s car with a severity only possible on a highway. The subsequent rear-end collision not only claimed the victim’s vehicle but catapulted it into yet another car on the road. While the victim didn’t succumb to his injuries, he didn’t get out of the wreckage Scott-free.

The crash left the man with several spinal injuries he’ll carry with him for the rest of his life. He reported pain in his head, back, lower back, neck, and right shoulder and weakness in his right arm that actively impaired day-to-day activities. Luckily, we live in the modern age, and there are therapy and surgeries that can at least partially alleviate his suffering. The victim received an anterior cervical discectomy, lap band surgery, fusion, and an anterior lumbar discectomy. While helpful, these procedures can be immensely taxing and pricey.

Represented by attorney Ani Megerdichian with JT legal group, he managed to claim a lot in the subsequent litigation. The $1.5 million settlement represented not only justice for the victim but hope for many other victims (and their families) looking for compensation after similar tragedies.

With an estimated 500,000 people injured yearly in rear-end collisions, and far fewer cases ending in a celebratory million-dollar settlement, it’s safe to say that access to resources like those provided to this man isn’t available to everybody. So it pays to know your rights and the typical procedure for seeking justice. If you’re unlucky enough to be in a horrible car accident, you still want to be lucky enough to win a million dollars from it.
