The following is a description of the accident and injuries of a former Andrew Kim Law Firm client. Initials are used to protect the identities of the parties involved.
On August 27, 2009 in Tacoma, Washington, ME was driving southbound on Orchard Street in the far left lane. While stopped as the first vehicle at the stop light at the intersection of Emerson, ME was rear ended by JV, who was going approximately 35-40 miles per hour. The collision pushed ME into the middle of the intersection.
ME was transported to a local hospital by ambulance with injuries to the neck and back. Xrays were taken at the hospital, then was referred to a local physical therapy office, where ME received treatment for several months.
ME was referred to the Andrew Kim Law Firm by a former client to handle their personal injury claim. When a fair settlement was never offered by JV's insurer, Farmers Insurance, the Andrew Kim Law Firm filed a lawsuit against JV in Pierce County Superior Court. The case went to mandatory arbitration, but reached a settlement before the sceduled arbitration.
