Our client was driving her vehicle when a tractor-trailer owned by Giant Food Corporation changed lanes and ran her off the road. The client had a prior knee replacement and had to have it revised two years following the collision. Giant argued that they were not responsible for the knee revision surgery since the Plaintiff would have required a revision, even in the absence of the tractor trailer driver's negligence, and because the client did not have any pain in the knee following the collision. Partner Allan M. Siegel filed a lawsuit on behalf of the client. The trial was scheduled for Janauary, 2009. The Defendant offered to settle the case for $75,000, two weeks before trial.
