Attorney Kevin M. Conaboy of the law firm of Abrahamsen, Conaboy & Abrahamsen, P.C., Milford, recently secured a jury verdict in the amount of $39,800.00 on behalf of a client injured in an April, 2009, motor vehicle accident. It is anticipated that with the addition of interest the total recovery will exceed $40,000.00. The three day trial was conducted before the Honorable Gregory Chelak in the Court of Common Pleas of Pike County.
The accident at issue occurred when the defendant pulled from a stop sign into the path of the injured party's vehicle, causing the collision. As a result of the accident, Attorney Conaboy's client sustained injuries to her neck and low back which required chiropractic and orthopedic treatment. In the years before the accident, the injured party had required sporadic chiropractic treatment for her neck and back. Attorney Conaboy successfully convinced the jury that the accident aggravated those pre-existing conditions, and that his client was entitled to be compensated for such an aggravation. The victim s husband also received compensation for the loss of his wife's services, companionship and society as a result of her injuries.
The defendant was insured by Progressive Insurance Company. Prior to trial, Progressive had offered $10,000.00 to settle the case out of court. Attorney Conaboy and his clients rejected this offer, and proved that the damages sustained warranted compensation of nearly four times the insurance company's offer.
