$1.49M Settled for a Rideshare vs. Motor Vehicle Accident

Our client was the driver of a Ford truck stopped at an exit ramp red light on Highway 87 in San Jose, California. Their spouse and child were passengers in the vehicle. Upon the traffic light turning green, our client proceeded into the intersection, traveling toward the westbound lane. The defendant was traveling eastbound and failed to stop at the stoplight. As the defendant ran the signal and turned left into the intersection, they T-boned our client’s vehicle. Liability was indisputable in this case.

As a result of this collision, our client began experiencing pain in their neck, back and left arm. MRIs revealed several disc protrusions of varying degrees and multilevel facet arthropathy. A further MRI of their shoulder showed superior labral fraying/tearing. Our client was diagnosed with cervical and lumbar intervertebral disc disorder and lumbar radiculopathy due to this collision. Additional transforaminal epidural steroid injections were recommended due to left shoulder impingement. They required additional medial branch block injections, undergoing radiofrequency ablation. Finally, they received anterior and posterior decompression, fusion, and instrumentation surgery.

Their spouse complained of constant pain in their neck and lower back, which radiated into their arms and legs, respectively, as well as pain in their right elbow. An MRI revealed a complex tear of the medial meniscus. In September 2020, they underwent an arthroscopic left knee surgery with meniscus debridement and chondroplasty. Despite surgery, they still carried a left foraminal disc herniation with facet hypertrophy, and a cervical spine MRI revealed a broad-based posterior disc protrusion of varying degrees at several spinal points. Our client’s spouse was also diagnosed with cervical disc displacement and cervical axial discogenic neck pain.

Our client’s child complained of achy, sharp pain in their neck, mid-back, lower back, and chest. X-rays revealed an anterior inclination of the cervical spine and a left inclination of the upper lumbar spine. As a result, they were diagnosed with cervical intervertebral disc disorder and lumbar intervertebral disc disorder.

Each has continued to experience pain that has directly impacted their lives as a result of this collision.
