An insurance company agreed to pay $1.3 million to a woman who claimed a parking lot collision caused multiple injuries. The client was driving on a perimeter road near a lot at the Palm Beach Gardens mall when the defendant’s vehicle struck the front driver’s side of her vehicle. She claimed the defendant wasn’t alert for approaching vehicles. He claimed he did not see her vehicle until impact. The client was diagnosed with herniated discs at L3-4, L5-S1, C4-5, C5-6, and C6-7, a torn supraspinatus muscle in the rotator cuff of her non-dominant left shoulder, and aggravation of existing carpal tunnel syndrome. She underwent surgeries for all her injuries.
