Rear-End Accident – Six Figure Mediation Result

NORFOLK, Va. (1/17/2017) Attorneys C. Jerry Franklin and Rhett B. Franklin won a significant six-figure settlement (specific figures and details subject to confidentiality agreement) for a rear-end accident occurring in Hampton on Mercury Boulevard.  The victim underwent a cervical fusion surgery (Anterior cervical discectomy with fusion) following the accident.   Subsequently, the victim had another non-auto accident and underwent a second cervical fusion.  The primary issue was whether the second surgery was related to either the original or subsequent accident.  Significant effort was placed into developing expert medical testimony to support the victim’s assertion that the second surgery was related to the automobile accident.  Franklin and Franklin was able to settle the case during an extensive all-day mediation.
