Brenda was injured when she was rear-ended by a negligent driver. Brenda had neck and shoulder pain that showed up a day after she was hit. She had shoulder surgery just 4 months after the crash for a torn rotator cuff. The other driver's company denied that their driver was at fault for the crash. They argued the collision was unavoidable due to slippery road conditions and said he sneezed while driving. The insurance company also denied that Brenda was hurt because she did not have shoulder pain the day of the crash. They argued her shoulder surgery was unrelated to the crash and instead was caused by "degenerative changes." The insurance company offered $0 before the lawsuit, and offered $5,000 right before trial. Lyndsey brought the case to trial and won a verdict of over $150,000.00.
