Attorneys: Charles Cooper/Robert Schall
Facts: On May 13, 2005, a 33-year-old mother of 3 children was picking up Chinese food for dinner in Chester County, Pennsylvania, when she was struck by the Defendant, who disregarded a stop sign, causing the Plaintiff to sustain disc herniations in her neck and back and nerve injuries requiring multiple injections and pain management to reduce her pain.
Cooper & Schall, P.C. successfully argued that the Plaintiff would need extensive medical care in the future and suffered a substantial past and future wage loss because the Plaintiff could not return to her job as an administrative assistant to the CEO of a software company due to the severity of pain in her neck and back. The Defendant settled at mediation after a lawsuit was filed by Cooper & Schall, P.C. It is worthy to note that Cooper & Schall, P.C. was successful in getting the Plaintiff approved for Social Security Disability Income.
