$2.1M settlement for 34 year-old unemployed woman obtained against Chicago Department of Aviation Police for aggravation of her pre existing C4-5, C5-6 disk herniations that were made worse following this crash with a department officer and eventually requiring surgery. She was originally diagnosed with the disk injuries in 2007 following an unrelated injury but Illinois law allows a claim for any condition that is made worse by the negligence of another or because of the person’s pre-existing conditions they are more susceptible to injury from an accident. We obtained this settlement shortly before trial in an amount many times what was originally offered.
