$205,000 settlement by attorney for spinal injury in Lewisville, TX car wreck by attorney for client suffering from pre-existing disc bulges.

Our client was driving his SUV northbound in the right lane of 300 Denton Tap Road in Lewisville, Texas. The at-fault motorist was on the job operating a pickup truck. He was distracted and failed to timely apply his brakes and rear-ended our client.

Comments from Attorney Shane Mullen: An MRI of our client’s lumbar spine demonstrated primarily degenerative findings. The client had multiple diffuse disc bulges and an osteophyte complex. He was in significant pain and discomfort. It was readily apparent that the commercial truck wreck had caused his previously asymptomatic degenerative disc disease to become symptomatic.

Remember: You do not have to suffer a “new” injury to be entitled to damages if injured in a car wreck. In Texas, you are also entitled to compensatory damages if you experience an aggravation of a pre-existing condition. It is not at all uncommon for clients to learn they have degenerative disc disease only after an automobile accident, since many people do not experience any symptoms from the condition and thus have never before been diagnosed.

Our client required multiple lumbar epidural steroid injections in order to cool down the inflammation in his lumbar spine. Thankfully the injections provided him significant pain relief.

Our Dallas personal injury law firm is fortunate to have a licensed Texas adjuster, Josh Banks, on staff. Josh has worked for several major insurance carriers and brings a unique perspective to our cases since he is intimately familiar with how insurance companies evaluate personal injury claims. Josh assisted me on this case and I am exceedingly proud of the result we were able to obtain for this client.
