Maria Lezcano, 43, was driving through an intersection when an SUV driven by Grace Coleman struck the passenger side of Lezcano’s car. Ms. Lezcano suffered herniated disks at C4-5, C5-6, L3-4, L4-5, all of which necessitated pain management, chiropractic care and surgery.
Lezcano continues to suffer ongoing neck and back pain. She now has limited range of motion in her neck.
Lezcano sued Coleman, alleging that after obeying the stop sign, Coleman chose not to yield the right-of-way of the intersection. The lawsuit also alleged that Coleman’s SUV owner was vicariously liable.
