  • $121,241.00 arbitration award involving serious injuries after being rear-ended on a state highway. Injuries included whiplash, back pain, muscle spasms, shoulder and neck pain with associated numbness and tingling along the arm and fingers, cervical radiculopathy, and traumatic rotator cuff tendinitis. The Plaintiff underwent arthroscopic surgery to her shoulder and incurred $35,000 in crash-related medical treatment. The bodily injury insurer initially offered $2,500, citing as reasons therefore that the crash impact was minimal and that the victim’s prior medical records indicated pre-existing shoulder pain.
