On September 29, 2005, Attorney Joseph Kubic was awarded a verdict for his client in the amount of $40,000.00 for injuries sustained when a car the plaintiff was riding in, driven by the defendant, was involved in a collision as a result of the defendant’s negligence in driving through an intersection. Attorney Kubic, in the jury trial, established that the plaintiff suffered soft tissue neck and back injuries as a direct result of the collision, which resulted in 5% permanency ratings in both her neck and back. The jury awarded her $15,000.00 in economic damages (including future medicals of $6,700.00) and $25,000.00 in non-economic damages, as well as costs and interest. The carrier’s last pre-trial offer was $13,500.00.
