C.S., a 42-year-old woman, was involved in a rear end collision value as the result of another driver’s careless actions. She received a $28,500 settlement as compensation for her lost wages, vehicle repairs, pain and suffering, and medical bills for soft-tissue injuries to her neck, back, and arm.

Rear End Collision Scene

At 8:45 a.m. on January 27, 2015, C.S. was driving her 2000 Toyota 4Runner westbound on SR-202 in Tempe, Arizona. She occupied the number one lane. The traffic in front of her abruptly slowed and she had just brought her vehicle to a complete stop when she was struck from behind by the at-fault driver, causing her car to lurch forward and hit the vehicle stopped in front of her. The at-fault driver had just changed lanes into the number one lane when traffic abruptly stopped.

Highway Patrol responded to the scene of the accident to conduct an investigation and spoke with each of the involved drivers. The at-fault driver told police that he had seen the cars stop in front of him as he changed lanes but was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision. The police issued a citation to the at-fault driver for failure to control speed to avoid a collision. None of the involved parties were treated for injuries at the scene or transported to the hospital. All three drivers drove their vehicles from the scene.

Applicable Law – Rear End Collision Value

The at-fault party was cited at the scene for violating A.R.S. 28-701A, failure to control speed to avoid a collision. “A person shall not drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the circumstances, conditions, and actual and potential hazards then existing. A person shall control the speed of a vehicle as necessary to avoid colliding with any object, person, vehicle, or other conveyance on, entering, or adjacent to the highway in compliance with legal requirements and the duty of all persons to exercise reasonable care for the protection of others.”

Initial Injuries

The day after the incident, C.S. presented to Verve Chiropractic & Associates, where the chiropractor performed x-rays of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine and diagnosed her with whiplash, cervicalgia, somatic dysfunction of cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions, lumbosacral neuritis and spasm of muscle. She was treated with chiropractic therapy including chiropractic manipulation, therapeutic exercises, electric stimulation therapy, hot/cold pack therapy, massage therapy, and mechanical traction therapy.

Rear End Collision’s Treatment and Medical Expenses

Despite rest and multiple pain medications, C.S.’s pain intensified. When she could no longer withstand the pain she presented to Gilbert Urgent Care. Gilbert Urgent Care evaluated C.S. and she was diagnosed with back pain, weakness of the right side of her body, and decreased sensation. Gilbert Urgent Care transferred C.S. to Banner Baywood Hospital Emergency Room for further treatment.

The day after she visited Gilbert Urgent Care, due to her continued symptoms, C.S. presented to Dignity Health Medical Group where she was evaluated for severe pain in her neck, right shoulder, and arm. She was prescribed pain medication and advised to continue her chiropractic therapy.

C.S. was treated with Verve Chiropractic & Associates for a total of 55 visits over four months.

Her total medical expenses totaled $12,540.75.

Additional Expenses

C.S. claimed lost $270 in wages because she was forced to take time off work due to her pain and suffering and to receive treatment for the injuries she sustained as a result of this accident.

Additionally, the estimated value of repairs to C.S.’s vehicle was $2,275.46.

Insurance Involvement for Rear End Collision

C.S. had health insurance at the time of the accident and used it to defray the cost of her treatment.

C.S. also had car insurance at the time of the accident through Geico Casualty Company. Because of the severity of C.S.’s injuries, she received $13,500 from her own Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Policy. This settlement took about nine months to be reached after the accident occurred. C.S.’s premiums did not increase as a result of using her car insurance to supplement her bodily injury settlement.

The at-fault driver had car insurance through Progressive Preferred Insurance Company. Progressive accepted full liability in this accident and paid C.S. $15,000 to settle her claim. The settlement was reached about eight months after the accident occurred.


As the victim in this Arizona rear end collision value, C.S.’s total settlement was $28,500. This settlement includes the $15,000 paid by the at-fault driver’s insurance, as well as the $13,500 paid by C.S.’s own Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist policy. The total settlement took around 9 months to be reached in this matter. After the settlement, C.S.’s health insurance company received compensation from the bodily injury settlement for payments made on behalf of C.S.

C.S. was pleased with the results of her case. She was able to receive the treatment she needed to return to the state of well-being she was in before the accident. She also received compensation for her lost wages, had her vehicle repaired, and was compensated for her pain and suffering. C.S. was treated for around four months. Ultimately C.S. received around $11,000 for her bodily injuries in this settlement, the balance going to pay her medical bills and attorney’s fees and costs.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!
