Derek Stewart Case – Tailbone Removed Following a Highway Crash
Derek represented an 18-year-old in the St. Cloud area who was pushed off the highway by a distracted driver. The force of the crash aggravated a prior tailbone injury she had suffered in middle school. Ultimately after two years of treatment the client had her tailbone surgically removed to alleviate the pain. The other driver’s insurance company denied responsibility and never admitted the tailbone injury was aggravated by the crash. Derek filed the lawsuit against the at-fault driver at a binding arbitration. Derek continued to pursue the case against the 18-year old’s own insurance for underinsured motorist benefits. The client’s total recovery helped her start her college education and place a down payment on a home.
