Whiteside & Goldberg obtains $2,250,000 recovery for Plaintiff injured in automobile collision

This week, moments before trial was scheduled to begin, the attorneys of Whiteside & Goldberg, Ltd. obtained a recovery of $2,250,000 for a 54 year-old man who suffered serious and permanent injuries as the result of an automobile collision. The Plaintiff’s automobile was struck from behind at a high rate of speed, resulting in the Plaintiff suffering a fractured spine which required fusion surgery to repair. Subsequently, the Plaintiff developed chronic pain and was unable to return to work. The Defendant denied liability for causing the collision and also disputed the nature and extent of the Plaintiff’s injuries. Specifically, the Defendant hired two expert doctors in an attempt to prove that the Plaintiff was faking his complaints of pain, and that the Plaintiff was physically and emotionally capable of returning to some form of gainful employment.

Attorneys Jason Whiteside, Michael Goldberg and Brent Eames aggressively pushed the case towards trial, and after the jury was selected and in the moments before opening statements were scheduled to begin, the Defendants offered and the Plaintiff agreed to accept the lump sum of $2,250,000 to resolve the case.
