In February of 2003, JY had stopped for traffic on Interstate 5 near Mercer Street in Seattle, Washington, when she was struck from behind by AH. The collision was fairly significant, causing major damage to JY’s vehicle. The amount of repairs exceeded $ 6,400.00.

Washington law provides that the following driver has the duty to avoid a collision with the driver in front. AH was carelessly driving when she slammed into JY’s vehicle. JY did nothing to contribute to the cause of the crash and could do nothing to avoid it.

JY suffered many personal injuries as a direct result of the crash. She sustained neck pain, upper back pain, sore lower back and headaches. The later medical diagnosis of her injuries is listed below.

Car Accident Injuries:
--Cervical strain/sprain
--Thoracic strain/sprain
--Lumbar strain/sprain

JY is 24-year-old mother of a 2-year-old boy. At the time of the collision, JY was Piano Performance major at Seattle Pacific University. She is now employed part-time as a piano teacher in Bellevue, Washington. Her hobbies are playing piano, knitting, art and spending time with her son. Due to the injuries she sustained during the accident, KY is unable to continue with many of these activities. She cannot sit to play the piano for as long as she could before the collision.

JY hired car accident attorney Chris Davis and the Davis Law Group to handle her insurance claim and negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement.
