Rear-end collision/back injury

Catherine Valenzuela claimed a severe disc impingement in a rear-ender and was awarded $250,000. She was stopped at a red light when she was rear-ended by Dineshba Patel, who was traveling at least 30 mph. Valenzuela claimed that she never suffered a back or neck injury before this crash. She alleged that she developed disc bulges at multiple levels with a serious spinal impingement. She said her future prognosis was extremely poor, with a likelihood of increasing back and neck pain and diminished function. Patel claimed a pre-existing condition and denied responsibility.
