$100,000 damage verdict for a 56-year-old woman with degenerative disc disease in her neck. In May of 2004, Mr. Cox’s client was traveling as a passenger in her car with her nephew driving. As they topped a hill, her nephew struck a fire truck, which had been parked in the road in response to an emergency request to set up a landing zone for a life flight helicopter that was to transport injured victims of another accident. One of the many challenges, in this case, was proving that his client’s subsequent neck pain and surgery were related to the car accident, despite pre-existing degenerative disc disease throughout her neck. The jury returned a $100,000 damage verdict.
