Conal Doyle was lead trial counsel in this personal injury automobile accident case. The plaintiff was a Spanish speaking 50 year old woman who underwent disc replacement surgery in her cervical spine. The defense, State Farm insurance company, challenged both causation and damages and asked the jury to return a verdict that did not include compensation for the plaintiff’s spine surgery. The jury compensated the plaintiff for the spinal surgery, and the total recovery after costs of suit was over $700,000. The judgment was paid by State Farm shortly after the verdict, without appeal. The highest settlement offer was $250,000.
