BPM Attorneys Successfully Represent Trucking Company

Lori Hurl and Laura Kruse successfully represent trucking company in an admitted liability dispute.  The plaintiff was involved in a five vehicle collision that was caused by the trucking company.  After treating with chiropractic and massage therapy for eight months, the plaintiff self-reported to her chiropractor that she felt 90-95% pre-accident status.  Despite being almost 100%, the plaintiff continued treating for an additional 4 years.  During this time, plaintiff’s medical bills increased substantially and plaintiff claimed she would need extensive medical treatment in the future. The jury agreed with the defendant that plaintiff’s additional treatment was not reasonable or related to the accident (except a few months of physical therapy) and awarded plaintiff approximately 6% of what plaintiff asked for in closing.
