Piccuta Law Group Attorney Charles Tony Piccuta Starts Spinal Injury Jury Trial
On March 20th, 2017, the Piccuta Law Group started a four day jury trial in the matter of Mark H. Deaner v. Carter Joseph Santini (Case CV2015-001148). The case arose out of a medium impact rear end collision. The collision resulted in very little visible damage to the vehicles. However, the client eventually required a disc replacement surgery in his neck.
The client never had neck pain prior to the collision and treated with a chiropractor and pain management doctor before getting the surgery. The defendant, who was insured by Farmers Insurance, claimed that the collision was not hard enough to cause an injury requiring surgery. Farmers also claimed that any injury that the client suffered was only soft tissue but had completely resolved long before the surgery. The firm took the case to trial because it believed that the collision caused the need for surgery and that Farmers was unfairly treating its client by denying the expenses associated with the surgery.
Prior to starting trial, Farmers Insurance’s highest offer to settle the case was $25,000.00. The client’s final demand was $249,900.00. The client’s medical expenses were $103,000.00 of which approximately $75,000.00 were related to the surgery.
