Hillsborough County, FL — Shelton | McKean just completed a three-day admitted negligence trial involving a three car collision on the Selmon Expressway. Plaintiff, 38, with no prior treatment began treating within 2 days of the accident culminating in a single level Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Disc Replacement to the tune of over $130,000.00. Total combined medical bills were $164,000.00. Plaintiff had demonstrable herniated disc in the lumbar as well and was indicated for a future lumbar fusion surgery. The Defense CME agreed Plaintiff had likely suffered a slight injury. At trial, Plaintiff asked for over $500,000.00. Thankfully, the lawyers of Shelton | McKean showed up to defend. After exactly 1 hour–to the minute– the jury returned its verdict–to the penny suggested by defense– of $2,150.00. With an expired Proposal for Settlement, the Plaintiff can expect to be paying defense attorney’s fees and costs. Congratulations to Mario J. Russica, Esq., Kristy Rowsey and Adam Shelton for this excellent result.
