In this case, a full time college professor ultimately had to give up her employment because of the ongoing effects of a rear end freeway car accident which took place in Washington State. The claimant was able to recover $225,000 from her own insurance company, CSAA, in addition to the $50,000 she recovered from the insurer of the at-fault party. GJEL Accident Attorneys obtained pre- and post-accident employment records, interviewed treating physicians, obtained medical reports, and attended numerous depositions of medical experts prior to obtaining the settlement, following two sessions of mediation. This recovery was obtained despite the fact that the claimant suffered from a significant level of disability, including partial paraplegia, prior to the rear end car accident.
