Anthony v. Indian River National Bank and Nikola - $675,000
On June 27, 2003, Karen Anthony was traveling northbound on Old Dixie Highway and approaching the intersection of 65th Street. As she lawfully proceeded into the intersection, she was violently struck by an eastbound vehicle being operated by Barry Nikola, an employee of Indian River National Bank.
Ms. Anthony was rushed to Indian River Memorial Hospital with injuries to her neck and lower back. During her follow-up care, it was discovered that Ms. Anthony had sustained a large herniated disk at C6-7, which was touching the nerve root and causing pain to extend into Ms. Anthony’s left arm. She also was suffering from bulging disks at C3-4, and C5-6 , as well as a lumbar HNP as a result of the accident . Ultimately, Ms. Anthony was required to undergo a cervical diskectomy and fusion to her neck.
Ms. Anthony sought legal representation for the signficant injuries and mounting medical bills she suffered due to the negligence of Indian River National Bank and their employee, and the impact the accident was having on the life she knew before. After a lawsuit was filed, Mr. Alpizar and his staff were successful in obtaining a settlement for $675,000.00 on behalf of Ms. Anthony.
