3 MPH Impact Causes Heart Condition
Our client was stopped in her vehicle when a large truck next to her made a right turn at only 3 mph sideswiping her car and dragging the vehicle 100 feet unaware that an impact had even occurred. Our client was looking through her window at this large commercial vehicle and screaming hysterically until her car finally came to rest. As a result of this traumatic incident, she developed heart palpitations requiring ongoing monitoring. The defendants claimed that such a small impact could not have caused any substantial trauma and refused to offer anything over $20,000 prior to trial. The jury disagreed.
