Our client was traveling westbound on Interstate 670 (I-670) just east of the Broadway Boulevard overpass in Kansas City, Missouri. Traffic slowed to an abrupt stop apparently due to congestion near the Broadway Boulevard exit ramp. Directly behind our client, another driver was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop his vehicle in time. He collided his vehicle into the rear of the vehicle of our client, which totaled our client’s car.
Our client did not feel much pain until two days after the collision, which was the first time he sought medical care. He underwent CT scans but no fractures were noted. Our client was recommended to physical therapy, which he was unable to complete due to worsening pain. An MRI was ordered which revealed multiple bulging lumbar discs in his spine along with central canal stenosis with thecal sac effacement. Our client was recommended for injections and further physical therapy.
The case settled for policy limits of the at-fault driver after our firm prepared and submitted a demand package.
